1. If you could, would you open a restaurant and what would you call it?

2. Electric, Charcoal/Wood or Gas?

3. Who is your hero and why?

Hi :) Haven't seen many posts by you so I guess my first question would be, why you're so quiet?

2. What are your hobbies?

3. What do you enjoy most about cooking?

4. Which 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

1:Having once owned my own bakery(at least as a partner) the most ambitious thing I would do would be a food truck. What I would serve would depend upon how I felt and what looked good at the market that day

2: Not yet, yes/yes and yes. It depends on what I'm cooking and how long I have til dinner

3:This one is tough. My dad died when I was 11( 40 years ago this week) so I didn't get to know him well enough to call him my hero. While I admire Reagan I was young and very different when he was president and did not like him then

I will have to think about this one and reply once I can think of someone

That is the only way i would be able to cook...I don't think I could stick to a menu.

1: I am a quiet person who also hates to type

2: I love to cook, the more exotic and complicated the better. I make my own beer, the hoppier the better, a huge India Pale Ale, that is face puckeringly bitter, with some spicy Mexican or Thai food is heaven. I also like woodworking, although I haven't done much of that lately. I used to like gardening but it is not as much fun here in tropical south Florida

3:Making something that no one I know has ever tried( sous vide Kobe tenderloin was one of those) or ever even thought about. Finding the perfect beer match for a dish I make

4:Loyal, smartass, crazy

What is the first thing you remember cooking?

How did you discover your passion/ability for cooking?

I remember helping my mom bake bread when I was young. Mixing 20 loaves by hand was somewhat hard on her arthritis so she enlisted the help of the youngest son.
As to cooking, my mom's version of chili is only hot in the sense that it is cooked. In other words virtually no spices at all. I found a chili cookbook, tried one of the recipes and my mom never made her chili again. It was a hit.

My passion has only developed over the past 5-7 years as I started watching Top Chef and Iron Chef America. Then 3 years ago I had the opportunity to eat at "Victoria and Albert's" at the Grande Floridian at Disney World

It was spectacular and I started trying new things as soon as we got back. Within 6 months my wife(who taught me a lot about cooking) told me that I had officially passed her in cooking ability, as she needs a recipe for something new while I just need to have an idea, find good ingredients and some imagination

Since you're not a fan of typing, I'll stick to one question.

What character trait do you most value in yourself?
