I am an ok cook, especially if I'm cooking for guests ie for pleasure, as opposed to the daily grind of cooking for an unappreciative family! Still learning and want to learn more.
My favorite things to cook
French recipes, Thai food, risottos, home made burgers, potato wedges, pork ribs, steak, fish, baking....
My favorite family cooking traditions
French style food (mother was French) but definitely home made everything as much as possible.
My cooking triumphs
Recently pork ribs marinated in orange juice and lots of other flavours, so good. And a chocolate cake to thank the neighbour for feeding the cat! My soups are (sometimes) good, and my fried fish with baked wedges. Lime and chocolate meringues are rather delish!
My cooking tragedies
Tried to make a gluten free cake, accidentally used spelt flour instead of hazelnut meal, was like a brick! My scones NEVER work, just can't get the knack!
