I have been told I don't look like the typical "natural" cook, I'm a biker and a gear head, so apparently stereotypically I shouldn't be interested in cooking and baking, but I love it. My dream is to open my own cafe, but I guess I need to stop moving around so much first and plant some real roots ;) I started ?really? cooking when I was about seven years old, and not just scrambled eggs and toast, the first "proper" diner I made was a roast chicken with sweet potatoes, roast carrots and onions, stuffing and a chocolate cake for desert (strange how you remember some things isn?t it?). My Grandmother was my biggest influence as a child I think, even though my mum is a heck of a cook too. I traveled around Europe for 8 years while based in the Czech Republic. I love food from almost every country, I dabble in Mongolian, Chinese, Czech, traditional English, Mexican, American, Indian, and I make up my own. I love to cook, and bake, and love the reaction I get from those who taste my cooking. I work from home which gives me a little more room for preparing food. I have a four year old, who is showing the signs of wanting to cook too, and who has a very broadened palate. I?m not the type of cook that measures everything, I do it all by eye, which makes it hard to reproduce things sometimes, so I?m trying to get in to the habit of writing it down as I do it regardless of what it is. Sometimes when I start making a meal, half way through I will decide that I want to try something different. Thankfully as of yet (knock on wood) I haven?t had a bad dish yet, I hope it stays that way ;)
Almost all types, not tripe, haggis or any other internal organ. Avocado, ginger, steaks are my favorites. I love Indian food, but of late my favorite food has been my own (which is strange, normally everybody else loves my cooking but I'm overly critical of it)I LOVE chocolate fudge!!!!! :)
