I'm a chemist by profession, but I love to cook and eat good food. I also do a bit of home winemaking. My wife is a good cook and a very good (although non-professional) baker. Since we have a couple of kids and full-time jobs, cooking is about the only hobby we really have any time for. We're in the preliminary stages of re-doing our kitchen, so you can all probably look forward to all kinds of questions from me regarding this process (although I'll try to check previous posts to avoid re-hashing old issues).
I very much look forward to lurking around here and participating, whenever possible, in the discussions.
