Cooking philosophy: Simple, seasonal, sustainable.
Favorite food to eat: Sushi! Homemade guacamole, and just about anything with basil
Least favorite food: Cooked fish, curry spices, or anything made with dill.
Favorite food to cook: Creme brulee because I get to play with a blow torch
Can't live without what tool in the kitchen: Frying/sautee pan. I use it every day and sometimes for every meal.
Can't live without this spice: Garlic and basil
Cooking goals for 2011: Plant a garden and get a compost pile going (again)
A little about me: I always cook for a mob. With a family of five plus numerous friends who happen to "just stop by" in time for dinner I always cook for a crowd. Any leftovers wind up in the freezer for a quick meal later in the month. I love cooking seasonal food, especially fresh picked vegetables from my summer garden. I also love O la la! dishes for entertaining. You know, the ones that sparkle and everyone loves. Any time you're in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by! I love feeding people!
