We live in Brooklyn, NY.
I come from a long line of excellent cooks; have been interested in cooking since childhood and seem to have passed this interest along to my two sons, both of whom cook professionally.
Favorite recipes come from a variety of sources: family and friends, magazines, newspapers and cookbooks, more recently, tv and the internet,as well as trial and error recreations of restaurant meals we've enjoyed.
A pet peeve of mine is a dish with "too many ideas"!
In addition to the foods I grew up with, a kind of melange of German, Middle European and "standard American fare", I love a variety of ethnic food including Mediterranean (Italian, Greek), Middle Eastern, Asian (Indian, Malaysian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai) and have developed proficiency in a fair number of dishes within those categories.
Over time, my preferences in cooking have simplified, (perhaps due to age and decrepitude...).
Whatever the recipe's origin, I have come to appreciate the value of fresh ingredients (the fewer, the better, to a certain extent); well-prepared and presented.
