An intelligent and attractive friend on jdate once described all the men she met as old, short, bald, fat, and cheap. I don't think I fall into any of those categories--LOL. I am an attorney by day but an intrepid chef by night. Beside my son and other close family members, cooking and baking are my passions, and I love to share my food with those I care about. I get a huge kick out of suprising those who don't think a man can cook. Best dishes (IMHO) are Italian (veal/chicken picatta, marsala, parm, eggplant parm, marinara, etc.), French (steak in a red wine, mushroom and shallot sauce or a mustard, brandy cream sauce, chocolate souffle, and great omelettes), and Middle Eastern (falafel and tahini, baba ghnoush, hummus and marinated kabobs), and, of course, anything that can be grilled or smoked on a charcoal grill. Best desserts include, among many others, chocolate blackout cake and chocolate peanut butter cake (anyone like chocolate?). My dessert list is available upon request--LOL. Let's see if we can cook something up together.
