Welcome to Great Cooking!

The purpose of this site is to bring the gourmet restaurant experience
directly into your kitchen.

As Owner and Head Chef of the boutique gourmet restaurants Baron's of Old Town in Albuquerque and Casa Vieja in Corrales I was honored by having selected recipes requested by and published in such publications as Gourmet and Bon Appetite, and to receive mentions in Du Monde and a host of other publications.

We had a customer who came in from San Francisco for our Cioppino, another who would call in from Denver to reserve a half of a Lime Pie before he flew down, and a gracious gentleman from the West Texas oil patch, (he owned a big chunk of it) who liked our place so much he didn't mind driving 200 miles for dinner and a bit of Albuquerque. We were so tightly booked we had to turn away the Governor one evening. I am sharing these things to illustrate that our food was great. You can trust these recipes.

For this site, we have chosen recipes that are excellent and that a person of average skills can cook. These are the kind of recipes that will make you want to get out a nice bottle of wine, and your best tableware to add a welcome flair to the finished dish.

Here at Great Cooking we now have sites for your enjoyment that present:
  • Appetizers
  • Seafood Recipes
  • Salads
  • Entrees
  • Sauces
  • Holiday Recipes
  • Desserts

  • There is also a section with our favorite Mexican recipes.

    From the recipes currently on this site you can make a fabulous meal for company, or merely enjoy a great green chile stew for Sunday brunch. We have also provided a section on Kitchen Safety which we encourage you to read. Your kitchen is one of the most dangerous places in your household, so this information is important.
