I'm a culinary student just about to graduate from my program. Its surprising how many people just don't "appreciate" food like I've learned to and I wish I knew more people I could talk to about it! Hoping to learn a lot and make friends with some people with the same passion. :)
I'm what I like to call a "health concious" culinarian, but I have a tendency to break free of that and make me some serious French & German comfort foods (coq au vin, dauphinoise potatoes, jagar schnitzel). I'm fairly decent at making mother sauces, especially hollandise. I watch Julia Child for fun on my days off, I no absolutely no French outside of cooking terms (but I speak pretty good German). I love looking at knives I cannot afford, playing in cooking stories is my favorite rainy day activity, and I have a rubber spatula collection that could make me look either nuts or look like a pack rat.
Or both. Haha.
Either way. Hello again, hope to learn a lot here!
