I am currently a third year medical student, that beyond the worlds of medicine and science, finds herself fascinated and completely hooked on cooking. I have always enjoyed cooking, but in recent years I have become a fanatic, and branched out extensively in the dishes I will undertake in the kitchen! I have come a long way from my Italian days, though still my favorite "genre." French, Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, and even fish, have all started to make it regularly into the rotation!
I have also started to dabble in the pairing of foods and wines. My husband and I discovered a winery, Martinelli, on our honeymoon that really became the first to fully open my eyes to the complexities and subtleties of wine. I enjoyed a glass of wine before, but now I was a believer! After our return, and in the months that followed, I began attempting new dishes with much greater thought given to what I would pair with it.
So here begins a catalogue of future efforts. I hope to post fairly regularly, as school, energy, and the need to sleep occasionally permit. On occasion I will prepare something and work on a wine pairing. I'll give my thoughts, which are by no means those of an expert of any sort, and I hope to hear yours as well.
It's off to the kitchen!
