Born and Raised in New Zealand and lived in NJ USA for 4 years.
Loved cooking from and early age and since living in USA have loved making typical USA dishes such as key lime pie or buffalo wings and introducing them to my Kiwi friends> I Am also very fond of Italian cuisine, Indian and Japanese
My favorite things to cook
Key Lime Pie.
Cinnamon scented Basmati rice.
Chocolate Caramel Slice
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every time there is a family get together it's always a pot luck affair so everyone shares the cooking and clean up.
I keep trying to change it to intimate dinner party affairs but so far nobody is buying! lol.
My cooking triumphs
My not-so-secret recipe for chocolate caramel slice.
That pudding was pure genius!
I won first prize for a dessert baking contest at the Kiwi Club of New York annual summer picnic. I submitted my Pavlova recipe!
My cooking tragedies
Cake! I just can't get a really good chocolate cake. Mine always turn out dry.
