Chris Rawstern's Profile:
My name is Chris Rawstern and I have been on a cooking and baking journey for 42 years. Many people have asked what "A Harmony of Flavors" means. Have you ever had a meal where the visual presentation was stunning, the smells were incredible, the taste was so remarkable that you ate slowly savoring every bite, wishing the experience would never end? Then you have experienced what a truly harmonious meal can be like. My ethnic background is Slovakian on my mother's side and Yugoslavian on my father's. My ethnic cooking influences began at the cradle! I began my cooking career in Guatemala, in 1970. I moved there as a naive 20-year-old, and set out to learn everything I could about cooking in a foreign land. This process was complicated by the fact that I could not speak or read the language. This experience set a remarkable pattern for the rest of my life, as I learned to prepare healthy simple meals, from scratch, on a tight budget. I had no oven for many of the 12 years I spent there. An electric fry pan became my "oven." I used it to bake cakes, pies, and even bread! On top of all that, when I did get an oven, its dials were in Celsius, and I tried to "guesstimate" what the temperature should be. For a young newlywed, these should have seemed insurmountable odds. I guess youth is indomitable. I proceeded to learn all I could, especially from my mistakes and I feel that all these lessons cemented a firm basis for me in cooking, baking and using recipes. I hope to pass along recipes that I have been making for 42 years, as well as many new ones. I will also pass on tips or notes with things to watch for, things changed, and what just plain works better. I have amassed huge quantities of recipes over the years, and recently have begun giving classes. My passion is to teach people how to create a "Harmony of Flavors" with their cooking, and help pass along my love and joy of food, both simple and exotic, plain or fancy. I continue my journey in ethnic and domestic cuisines, trying new things. I would love to hear from you, to help me continue my journey to explore diverse culinary experiences and hopefully to start you on a journey of your own. Visit my Web site or my Blog at Let me know, and I will send you a copy of my monthly news letter full of recipes the latest tips.
