While browsing, I saw a picture of what was touted as a Tornado Potato, a whole potato spiral cut and wrapped around a skewer and then deep fried Said to have originated in Seoul, South Korea, this potato is now showing up around the USA at fairs and festivals. There is a special cutter you can buy for this or if you have patience you can spiral cut the potato by hand. Having neither the cutter or patience, I decided to string the potato slices on a bamboo skewer and then fry them. Season them with salt and pepper or Greek or Cajun seasoning...whatever you like. The kids will love eating their "fries" on a stick. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
