on cooking.

1337 cooking tom ga kai1

I can cook… maybe?  I really don't know much about cooking.  I pretty much cook to survive.  I blame it on college when I learned to cook.  I was in my lab most of the time, so cooking was the lowest priority.  When I cooked I either cooked something very basic or if it was complex, enough for twenty people so I could freeze the meals for future consumption.  (I actually still cook like that. woops.)  Although my cooking repertoire is limited, I'm pretty good at making stir fry and dumplings and cooking rice in a pot. :D  Is it sad that cooking rice in a pot is an accomplishment for me? haha.

Even though I'm not the biggest fan of cooking myself, I do enjoy cooking with people and watching them do their thing.  (And eating the spoils of their labor, of course.)  So I had fun capturing a bit of Kim's process as she cooked Tom Ka Gai.  Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the end result, but it was indeed yummy.  Check out her blog for some great posts about fashion, food and life.  And be sure to watch the video at the end of this post!
