I'm 30, married, and with two furkids-a cute cat, she's an Australian Mist called Kismet, and a chocolate labrador called Indiana Jones. Live in North West Sydney, and have all my life except for a short stint in Germany just after we were married. I am an engineer by degree, but have recently left a large telecommunications company to work in a small Veterinary hospital as a vet nurse.
I like camping and 4wding, fishing and horseriding, having parties and barbeques. We're ex-Scouts and still love to travel even if it's just a short break to the mountains, or to the wine regions. I love baking and experimenting with different cuisines. I wont cook things with too many ingredients, or that are too fiddly, or which take too long (or too expensive for that matter!). I'm a dab hand at modifying the 67c home brand packet cake.
My husband is Swiss-Australian, so I have a bit of that European influence as well, and try to reproduce our favourite Swiss recipes as accurately as possible. I am hopefully trying for my Swiss citizenship once I've studied up for my interview! We love travelling, and after visiting Vietnam in 2008 I'm obsessed with both the country and the cuisine, it's so varied and fresh and amazing!
I love Thai, Italian and Vietnamese and most vegetables (no peas or zucchini). I don't eat much meat, but I also have friends and relatives which are vego/no wheat/no dairy, so I try my hand at a bit of that too (I hate excluding people!). I love strong flavours- anchovies, olives, blue cheese and dark chocolate.
Favourite dish is gnocchi gorgonzola from La Spaghettata in Lygon St, Melbourne. My best cooking resources (apart from Zaar!) are Good Taste magazine, Australian Women's Weekly, and Food Safari. I'm quite picky about my recipe books and they need to be set out the way I like them, or I wont use them. But who needs recipe books when you have the Internet?
A great evening for me would be a dinner party with wine and friends, maybe some silly games like Scrabble or Pictionary. And of course I would cook!
