Glad to be here. I'll be more in evidence after the next month or so. I'm actually a professional violinist/conductor, and this is my busy season. I put myself through school ages ago as a professional photographer/darkroom rat, so I'll post some photos, too.
My interest in cooking was not only because of my Mother, but because I've been doing the hunter/gatherer thing since I was a boy. (I'm in my late 50's now).
I'll be passing on a few recipes I've developed for fish and game, especially. I don't keep secret anything I cook - hey, it's our hobby, eh? And don't worry - I'll be snaffling a few of yours, too!
Thanks for the replies.
