Have you ever heard the term molecular gastronomist? Do you know who the MG’s of the world are? What does it mean . . . is it for real? These are all questions you may be asking . . . especially after seeing the term or title in my blog.
Well Iets answer those questions including who…
Hello, my name is David; I have been married 30 years to my wife Kathy and we have 2 kids who are now young adults. My wife has a degree in early childhood education and has been in the business for over 30 years.
I have spent most of my career in manufacturing and recently accepted a job with Amgen Inc., a biological manufacturing facility. Amgen cultivates cells for the purpose of creating scientifically designed proteins for various medicines. So when people ask me what I do; I tell them I make drugs for a living.
Ironically, the fermentation process for making drugs is very similar to the process of making beer. Yes, I like to make beer as well.
My wife and I have an open house for children young and old, parents, friends, and neighbors: All a merry mix, we refer to it as the Teenage Hub . . . even though our kids are no longer teenagers. We love our dogs Abby, Jaguer, and Alley and invite people, “young and old” to come over for weekly cook
My favorite things to cook
Barbacue and smoked meats. Mexican meals, especially green chili, I am known amoung my family and friends for my green chili. I can also make a mean tamale.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oster dressing at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
I have an excellent recipe for cooking country style spare ribs. These ribs are cooked in a glass cassarole dish in the oven for three hours using lemon juice and homade barbacue sauce. By far the best recipe I ever known. I have never received less than a WOW!!! for this one.
My cooking tragedies
I don,t have many tragedies anymore but everyone usally leaves the area if I do.
