New to cooking in San Francisco!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all!  I just moved out on my own and am dealing with cooking for myself every day for the first time.  This is my first time here and I'm looking forward to getting a ton of advice to everything from meals for one to cooking for holidays!

Welcome to Chef Talk, Jennio11! This is a wonderful place to learn new things and share what you've learned as you develop your skills in the kitchen. 

 

I hope you'll make use of the search tool because many of the basics of cooking have been discussed at some time over our 10+ year history. If you can't find what you need to know, by all means: choose the best forum and post your question. The only restriction on us home cooks is that we can't post in the professionals' forums. But we're encouraged to read and explore there, then post questions in the general forums. 

 

Beside the discussions we have cooking articles, cookbook and equipment reviews and more. If you have any questions about using this site and getting the most out of it, please ask a veteran member or a moderator. We're a helpful bunch!

 

Good luck to you! Congratulations on your independence, too.

Regards,

Mezzaluna

Welcome aboard ... and all my best wishes for a wonderful holiday in your own flat ( apartment ).

 

I am a native Manhattaner, who took the plunge 2 decades ago, to follow my dream and my heart, and live in the Mediterranean. I had lived in Greece, Italia and however, currently, Spain is my home.

 

Look forward to reading some of your penning and feedback.

 

Margcata.

Thank you for the kind welcomes!  Margcata, I lived in Madrid for three months in college and fell in love with every single thing about it and the rest of Spain - and especially the food!  Since then I've been not only more interested in cooking, but I'm trying to ease into being a true cheese/wine/coffee/jamón connoisseur in my own home.  Harder than it seems when I no longer live down the street from ten different mercados!

I live in Madrid Capital and it is quite a wonderful city culture wise ... Lots of gratis gallery exhibitions and cool Gastro Bars and traditional tapas bars too ... Fun city ...

 

However, I remember when there was only one Italian Restaurant and one terrible Asian back in the 1990s ... None the less, all that has changed ... The most unusual memory I have of Madrid in 1994, it was very rare to see anybody that was African or Asian ... more over, anybody that was foreign except those working at the Embassies, Otan, The U.N. or doing TEFL English courses ...

 

Being a native Manhattaner, I was taken aback by that ... I had moved over to Italia for a little over two years and then returned to Madrid in 1997.
