About the Cooking Cop

Peter V. Bella has been cooking since he was a child. He is also a retired Chicago Police officer, hence the name, The Cooking Cop. Peter has a cook book library of 200 books and growing.

The purpose of The Cooking Cop is report on food, cooking, recipes, and kitchen tips. Cooking is easy, fun, and even if you only cook for yourself, cheaper than eating out or ordering in.

Basic cooking is a skill anyone can learn. Techniques and methods are simple and with practice become automatic. The key word is practice. Recipes are instructions. Unlike most instructions, good recipes are easy to understand and follow.
