Hi everyone, I just joined and wanted to say thanks for the very helpful discussions. I love cooking and specialy Desserts :)
Welcome, Ryuuk. You're in good company as a great many of us lean to the sweet side.
I see you're a food writer. Without being too specific about publications, what sort of writing do you do? Do you write on line, in print or for other media? You'll especially want to check out our cooking articles here. Our members write most of them. Most are chefs, some are food-lovers with other areas of expertise.
Besides the many discussion forums and the cooking articles, don't miss the photo galleries, or the reviews of cookbooks and cooking equipment. The archives are full of all sorts of goodies, over 14 years' worth. Good thing we have a search tool!
How did you come to your love of cooking? Was there someone who taught you, such as a family member, or did you learn by doing on your own? Perhaps there are dishes or ingredients you particularly enjoy making, or ones you hope to work with in the future. Hearing such stories is so interesting.
We hope you'll be a frequent participant in the community. Welcome!
