GREETINGS FROM UK IN A BIG SEASIDE TOWN.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

I'm new to this website and forum.  I am a competent home cook but am not as excellent as a professionally trained chef. I'm not to Michelin star standard but all my friends and family have tasted my food I have cooked from scratch at home. They all approve of my food I cook for them over a course of many years. I can cook all sorts of cuisines from all around the world self taught by cookery books and being creative in the kitchen. 

 

I am so glad I found this food forum to get ideas and tips for my new cookery book I am currently writing for publication and to be sold in shops, supermarkets and online retailers.  I will later also have my own youtube cookery channel.

Well Nico, if you wish for an invite to a dinner party of mine, then you will have to fly over to the South West of England to taste my culinary skills and see if you approve?

Homecook2014 I may take you up on the offer when I head over to visit my family sometime. :D

 

I was last in England in September 2013 after a rather long absence and was very, very pleasantly surprised at the developments in restaurant food and also in the array and quality of foods available in food shops such as Sainsbury's, Tesco, etc. My earliest trips were in the late 1960s (yes, I'm old) when bland or salty and greasy was the order of the day (think traditional pork pies). Now it's easy to find fresh, beautiful salads, excellent vegetarian meals, even gluten-free pizza and pasta even in small villages. The change in chain take away food, specifically Pret-a-Manger, is stunning. 

 

Now that I have family living there I've shopped several times in supermarkets and admired the excellent produce available these days. Huge "upgrade" from earlier times! I'm looking forward to future trips and to learning how to use my sister-in-law's AGA.

 

The discussion forums have a wealth of information, and we encourage you to read everywhere. However, please note that the professional forums are "read only" for us home cooks. We mustn't post there, only in the general forums. Everyone reads and posts in those, so your questions will be addressed there.

 

I hope you'll take some time to browse the site beyond the discussion forums, because the cooking articles are amazing. So much to learn and enjoy! 

 

Welcome, and good luck in your culinary exploits.

Regards,

Mezzaluna
