I've lived the last 3 years in Japan, and from this fall I'll be moving to England for grad school.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, although not necessarily eat the baked goods, and love taking cooking courses in foreign countries, while traveling!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making 10 or 15 types of cookies in December, freezing them all, and then taking them all out on Christmas Eve!
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triump has been successfully learning how to make Japanese style lunch boxes (called bento) and making 8 Thai dishes in a cooking course in Thailand.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to bake anything in a Japanese oven, as they royally suck, and you have to keep turning the food around manually.
