A Little About Me

New York, New York
As a newly married woman, it has become my mission in life to learn how to cook. Gone are the days of picking up sushi and ordering curries. In order to jump-start my education, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education's Fine Cooking I course where I learned the basics, from roasting to boiling to mousse-making (ok, maybe not that basic)! I've attempted to replicate some recipes - somewhat successfully- and create a few of my own. This blog is for friends and foodies and is intended to document my cooking adventures (and occasional fiascoes). Enjoy the pictures and bon appetite!

The Seven Pound Pineapple

The other day, I passed by one of those fruit carts positioned on every other corner and saw the most massive pineapple ever! I decided to purchase the monstrosity, since it was only $4 and I was told it was ripe and ready for eating. I used said pineapple to create accompaniments for two different versions of macadamia encrusted Chilean Sea Bass, the recipes for which will shortly follow!
