Hello! I am a nephrologist, and I live on the tip of the Adriatic with my adored husband. But I was raised and got my professional training in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
I'm not the greatest cook, but I love to try new recipes. My favorite cook books are Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, Louisette Bertholle and Simone Beck; The Classic Italian Cook Book by Marcella Hazan; San Francisco ? la Carte by the Junior League of San Francisco; Regional Italian Cooking by Ada Boni -- and many, many more.
My husband is a conservative eater, though. He would like to have spaghetti with tomatoes and a steak every night of the week. He says other foods give him heartburn. Gosh.
I am very grateful for Recipezaar because I have found many substitutes for staples that are not always available where I live.
I guess I would describe myself as a classicist when it comes to food: soups, chocolate cake, comfort food in general. I am not fond of mixing sweet and savory nor of fusion cooking. I love Mexican cuisine. I really LIKE organ meats (I'm a kidney doctor, after all!).
Favorite restaurants: Tadich Grill in San Francisco and Trattoria Max in Opicina (Trieste, Italy)
