I have wanted to join for a long time now. I have been teaching myself to cook for many years and it has helped a great deal to find so many recipes to watch on ATK as well as Cook's Country. I have been baking bread for many years and still have not tried any of the TK recipes for lack of time.
I love all types of food and cooking, but I don't use a lot of meat ... unless I'm making boeuf bourguignon. I use meat more often when company is coming. It's easy to make the day before.
I lived in Boston and New England for over twenty years. My favorite cooking show is ATK and Cook's Country. I must admit, but at the same time would love to say, that I abhor Lidia Bastianich. I just about doubled over as she showed a baptism on her, em, show. I could lose several pounds watching her and her hideous children if I were eating dinner. There is something so ultra-gross about her.
Sorry to anyone here who actually likes her, really. Well, I hope to learn a lot about baking and esoteric ingredients here. I absolutely LOVE Anthony Bourdain! He is my very favorite writer when it comes to food and food people.
I am a professional musician and have noticed musicians and artists of all types seem to gravitate toward food people.
Thanks for reading.
