If Ben Franklin had had his way and the lowly turkey had been elevated to the status of National Bird, this particular July 4th pairing might’ve been illegal. (When you outlaw turkey burgers, only outlaws eat turkey burgers.) However, the turkey didn’t make the cut, and because the big… MORE

About this Cook
My wife and I and our two devilish kittens live on Capitol Hill in Seattle. A few years ago, I got a masters in gastronomy. I'm a food/wine writer. I’m also blogging about cocktails.
My favorite things to cook
We cook fairly simple dishes using fresh local ingredients that we pick up at the Seattle farmers market. My favorite thing is making a nice slow-braised or long-roasted something on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I like cooking with wine (in the dish and in the glass...and in the cook).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom never liked to cook, but she did well despite herself. Her mother, my omi, was from Munich and made delicious rouladen, sauerbraten and other traditional German and American dishes. Always bins and bins of home-baked cookies at Christmas. Wonderful rye bread. And beer. Opa would say, "Brotzeit ist die beste zeit."
My cooking triumphs
We’ve made the signature timpano dish from The Big Night a couple times. And for Thanksgiving 2007, we made Turducken. My wife and I are always volunteering to cook the big holiday meals with the family. We mix a signature cocktail, and get down to it.
My cooking tragedies
I made Thanksgiving Dinner for myself once when I was snowed-in in Denver. I nearly burned down the neighborhood.

Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce
DELICIOUS! If you have the time and are using good cheeses, this is an amazing nacho cheese sauce. If you watch the video, you'll see how to avoid getting a grainy texture (low temp). Also..."cold milk + hot roux = no lumps." Will make this for the Super Bowl!

Chili Chocolate Cookies
amazing! the cayenne and black pepper don't add spicy heat; they draw out the chocolate flavor. the spice is way in the background. perfect.

Classic Aviation Cocktail
Great cocktail! I also took the recipe picture, which is not quite right, I admit--I used cherry liqueur (which is deep ruby) instead of maraschino liqueur (which is clear like grappa). A couple drops of liqueur de violet will give it the old pale sky-blue color. Also used slightly less lemon juice—b/c I like it in the background, adding just a touch of brightness.
