I was so happy when I discovered this web site. My short time using it has been fun and rewarding. I have been an avid amateur chef for many years. I love to cook and to host dinner parties for my friends. My style of cooking is very varied, but most Mediterranean for our everyday meals and heavily French influenced for dinner parties. I also do a lot of wine tasting. I think the most important part of cooking is Taste, Taste and Taste as a dish develops and in sourcing excellent ingredients. I eat at restaurants selectively, either to get ideas and see what the most creative chefs are doing or just to relax at non pretentious favorites where I know the food is taken seriously...It needn't be fancy, just good. On a final note, I'll taste almost anything, at least once.
