In an effort to get to know the participants in our Triple F nights everyone will take turns answering some food related questions in a seires of blogs called “Meet Your Friend.”
Lets start with Peter! Peter created the idea of Triple F and together with his wife Debbie host the Triple F nights on a monthly basis.
Sweet or salty?
Why set limits. Either is fine by me and sometimes both at once. yum chocolate covered bacon.
Which ingredient(s) do you use most?
As much spice as my wife will let me get away with.
What’s your favorite cooking smell?
I’m going to have to go with the classic smell of bread. Nothing makes me hungrier.
What’s your favorite kitchen gadget/appliance?
Thinking about it I can’t really pin one down as my absolute favorite. I use pretty much everything in my Kitchen to cook.
What won’t you eat?
There is nothing I won’t try at least twice. Twice because it might have been cooked badly the first time. Plus there are so many ways to cook everything that there is bound to be a way to cook it where it is good.
Who taught you your skills in the kitchen?
The food I’ve burnt over the years. It inspired me to cook better.
Who are your favorite Food Network Star?
Alton Brown hands down. Because I’m kind of a food geek also.
What’s your favorite dish to prepare?
Chicken rice Casserole. Perfected it in college since it’s so easy to make.
What is your favorite sit down restaurant?
All depends on what mood I’m in and what I want to eat.
What’s your favorite cuisine?
Going back to the mood thing. Man I’m moody!
What are you craving right now?
Heading out to one of my favorite places to get tacos so would have to be tacos.
Food, friends, & fun is a common trio but as Emeril would say, “Let’s kick it up a notch!” Add the desire expand our recipe box to this already amazing trio and you get the great concept of the Triple F Party!
I asked Peter why he started having Triple F nights. This is what he said:
“The idea for the “triple F” party has been bubbling in my brain for awhile. A few months ago Debbie and I wrote down all the recipes that we cooked for dinner on a regular basis. The list ended up being about 10 items long which is very surprising considering we both like food so much. In an effort to expand our list of stock meals, we started trying new recipes out of the cookbooks we had. As it turns out looking through a cookbook to make something you’ve never had before, and don’t know if you’ll like, is very daunting. About this time a friend of Debbie’s gave her a recipe to try, saying that her husband and child loved it. She made it that week and it was really good. This got me thinking that I hadn’t been using the best resource out there for new recipes, our friends. I started wondering how many of our friends were in the same stock recipe rut like us. Finally it all came together that we could all benefit from some new ideas in the kitchen by sharing all our favorite recipes. Having everyone bring the cooked dish is just added bonus.”
Over the next few month, you’ll get to meet all of the people behind the amazing recipes posted on this blog in a series of post called “Meet Your Friends”
