Got eggs, stale bread, and a skillet? Then you’ve got supper. Seriously. Chefs do this. It takes less time than takeout. Tastes immeasurably better.
A list of all the recipes Dan Kraan has tested.
Dan has been in the kitchen since he was a child growing up in the ‘60s, armed with a box of instant cake mix and an oven mitt that went up to his elbow. Despite his love for all things food, he majored in electronics and metrology, because those things are what pay the grocery bills. He dabbled in catering for a short period of time; then discovered Leite's Culinaria in 2004. Touring the site, he leapt at the opportunity to become a recipe tester, working his way up to the title of senior tester, which led to recipe testing for David’s book, The New Portuguese Table. This testing gig provided him a unique experience with Portuguese cuisine. “The whole world’s a pantry in my eyes, with so much variety out there,” Dan says. He’s been living with Jan, his wife/sous-chef, in the very multicultural area of Mississauga, Ontario for more than 10 years. He enjoys “cooking Canada” and tries to take advantage of wild and local commercially available ingredients whenever possible.
Truly impressive and a heck of a lot less fussy than it looks. Tastes pretty darn phenomenal, too. Sign us up.
