New User from France

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello everybody. I'd like to introduce myself.


I choose the user name Yank because that's what I am. An American living in rural France. (La France profund as they like to say here. Deepest France in other words.) We've been here full time for about 10 years, ever since 'she who must be obeyed' arm twisted my into retirement. It was a good decision actually  & we love it here. We have great weather (We're in the SW region of France), great food both in the restaurants & the market, beautiful scenery, good friends and a quiet clean atmosphere.


I am an enthusiastic home cook. I've cooked all my life, but only had the time to get serious about it since my retirement. I love doing it and cooking for friends. My style is a combination of American, British and French methods & dishes. I've recently started trying my hand at Chinese cookery. I'm finding it fascinating although getting some of the ingredients in this rural area can be a challenge.


I'm looking forward to participating in the forums and to learning from the Pros. I'll try not to be a pain in the neck with stupid question.
