That sounds familiar. I don't actually know when this site opened for business.

It would be funny if it coincided with Britains culinary revolution.

That's right. Food network forum was a big mess. Though at the time I was sad to see it go.

The English guys name was Geoff. bubbagourmet was the Admin along with our lovely kitchenelf. The site started in 2000 or 2001 I believe. Bubbagourmet was a member over at another cooking website I was on, and he mentioned this place. That website was difficult to navigate and you needed a paid subscription to their magazine to belong so I jumped ship. There are a few members from back then that float in once and a while. Barbara L came over about then, although she is more active on FB than here as are many of the folks who are less active here. They show up when they have a cooking question, but the social stuff is on FB.
