I'm an American English teacher living and working in Japan. The fast food here is not so great, so I spend a lot of time cooking and trying new recipes. I grew up in an Italian-American household, so I'm used to good Italian home cooking. I learned a lot from my family, but also use cookbooks regularly. I mostly cook Italian and Asian-fusion dishes, Irish soups, and some traditional Japanese dishes. I love having so many fresh Asian ingredients readily available, but I miss the shelves of an American supermarket just as much! I love being a teacher, and my other hobbies include photography, knit & crochet, and playing guitar & singing.
