I am a self-taught home cook. I have been cooking since the age of ten. I grew up in the heart of the ghettos. My mother was a single mom. Entertaining me and my other siblings was always done with food. On Saturday mornings, I would watch Julia Child's cooking show instead of the regular Saturday morning cartoons. I loved experimenting in the kitchen and creating dishes from what I learned on the cookking shows. One of the first dishes I remember making was Beef Bourguignon.
I learned to cook Puerto Rican food from my Grandmother. I remeber spending weekends with my grandmother. Shewould spend ours in the kitchen cooking. You could smell the cartibbeans herbs from a block away. As soon as someone stepped foot on the porch the whif of Puerto Rican cooking would fill up in their noses. I learned to make the secret ingredient that gives Puerto Rican cooking its essense of Caribbean flavors. Sofrito is a seasoning sauce popular in Hispanic Caribbean cooking. Both Dominican Republic and Cuba use sofrito but, with variations. Cuba's sofrito is milder then the sofrito used in Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. However, I have leaned to master this amazing seaoning sauce. It has become my secret weapon in the kitchen!
