About Me
I'm a recent graduate of Tufts University. I was born and raised in Italy by American parents (archaeologists). Living for many years in various other parts of the Mediterraneanas well, my family and I have become passionate fans of Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern food. I also have a younger sister adopted from Chengdu, China, so I have developed an interest in Sichuanese cuisine, which is fortunate because I love spicy food.
My favorite things to cook
Spanakopita Balsamic pork chops Hanger steak Moroccan food Red velvet cake (or cupcakes) All sorts of curries Ma po tofu Saltimbocca alla romana
My favorite family cooking traditions
Risotto, tortellini, Christmas cookies, hams from Amish country in the fall.
My cooking triumphs
A huge Chinese banquet of a dozen dishes. I learned to make everything on the spot from my much more experienced Chinese friend.
My cooking tragedies
Burning a whole lot of Hazelnuts while trying to turn them into some kind of cookie dough/paste
