Like I wrote in my review for this Quince Paste recipe, I love quince. I love them so much—and they’re so hard to find most of the time in the U.S.—that we planted a quince tree in our yard. This was the first year that our tree produced a bumper crop, so I was thrilled to be… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a professionally trained baker/pastry chef and also, as a friend would say, an intrepid eater. My favorite foodie character in literature? Ben Gunn, the marooned pirate in "Treasure Island": "You mightn't happen to have a piece of cheese about you, now? No? Well, many's the long night I've dreamed of cheese—toasted, mostly—and woke up again, and here I were."
My favorite things to cook
Laminated doughs. Elaborate dishes that require a day of prep work. Comfort foods, spicy foods, all kinds of food. (Although I am also happy eating a bowl of cereal.)

Halloumi Cheese Fingers
Loved this! Halloumi's expensive, but this was a great treat. Salty, crispy, lemony. Delicious!

Thai Green Curry Prawns
I was a little disappointed in this one. The sauce seemed really unbalanced. First, it was too sour; I added a teaspoon of brown sugar. Then, I added salt—but there was still something missing. We were halfway through dinner before I jumped up, saying, "FISH SAUCE. I knew it was missing something! No 'umami'"! That made it much better. I added red bell pepper and some sliced zucchini and yellow squash instead of baby corn. Leftovers were delicious.

Chef John's Spaghetti al Tonno
Delicious! I saw the video last week and went to Food Wishes to get the recipe; I'm glad it's on the site. We omitted the Parmesan.
