Classics Everyone Should Know

Classic Recipes Everyone Should Know

 

It’s hard to select just a few recipes when asked what some of my favorites are. 

I’ve been studying the culinary arts for many years, all over the world. It has been a great joy to learn from some of the best. In the process I have also learned to love many types of food, flavors, seasonings, and presentations. My list is ever growing so this page will change from time to time. I hope you enjoy these and let me know what you think.

I’ve chosen these based on some of the following criteria:

  • I enjoy making them
  • My family and friends ask me to make them again
  • They make a great visual presentation
  • They can be made without a lot of preparation
