Inspired late in life

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

I only 'warmed' food (cans and microwave) until six months ago when I suddenly (at age 60) decided that I would like to actually cook.  I am fascinated with the interaction of flavor, texture, aroma, and sight of food and how pairing those factors with the intriguing combination and mix of bitter, sweet, salty, sour, and umami (I just discovered), all work together to elicit an almost physical/spiritual response from those consuming it (hopefully).

 

Wow.  No wonder you all cook ... it is a fascinating endeavor.  I am just beginning to glimpse the possibilities and I am almost speechless. I am glad this website is here!

Hello!

 

Better late than never!   Cooking is such a wonderful way to express oneself - good for you for discovering it!

 

Feel free to join in on any thread you find of interest, or start your  own in the relevant forum.  The professional for on here are read-only for those of us who are not presently employed in a culinary trade (but they still make interesting reading!)  The wikis, blogs, articles, reviews and photography are also a source of information and inspiration.

 

Hope to see  you around the boards!

Life is full of surprises and thus, Welcome aboard. My philosophy is, it is never too late to do something novel and new, and or to make a professional career or freelance hobby into a part time or full time career.  I follow my passions. Without passion for what you are doing, one cannot do it well.

 

Happy Holidays.
