I'm an American-born journalist who has lived in Latvia (Old Country for my family) since 1989. I work in television and teach journalism at the local university, but make most of my living as a translator. Freetime activities include film, reading, theatre (I've performed in several plays myself), surfing the Web. My favorite cookbook without any question is the Doubleday Cookbook by Jeanne Hanna, which is the best basic cookbook in the world, as far as I'm concerned. I have lots of other cookbooks, too, but now that there's the Internet, one can find recipes there, as well.
I cook all kinds of things, but specialise in Italian and Chinese cuisine. My favourite dish to cook is Kung Pao chicken, and I'm well known for that in my circle of friends. My favourite restaurant won't say anything to anyone outside of Latvia, but if anyone ever happens to drop by Riga, try Andaluzijas Suns (Andalusian Dog, named after a film by Jean Bunuel and Salvador Dali).
