Welcom!

Not only is the Purple Mother Ship watching you, but so are Henrietta and Mrytle from the Chicken Chronicles. Can you knit? They need some new outfits. A stunning swim suit for the summer would do just fine. And not topless please. All the other girls get so jealous when those two get a new outfit.

Chicken Chronicles

This would be a good place to start.

Welcome to DC, Austral! I see you have already gone through the initiation process.

OK, Purple Mother Ship, Pie Cult, Chicken Chronicles, I'm already confused. Although, a little intrigued. Thanks for the warm welcome. I can already say, I'm going to enjoy it here.

This forum (which is my first also) really is wonderful! Welcome!
Thanks for the warm welcome. How long have you been professionally cooking? I wouldn't worry too much about having less experience. I know "untrained" chefs who are as talented, if not more so than qualified chefs. It's all about passion.

Apparently I have. Although, I'm not sure what to think. I'm confused but it still seems like a hell of a lot of fun.

Thanks Margi. Was in Italy and Spain in 2007. Had an absolute blast. As for the weekend, It's mother's day tomorrow so the restaurant will be packed and really crazy . Not looking forward. At least I'm only working breakfast. Well, so far.

Please post the recipe. My old boss, a baker, was from Melbourne and made a kick butt meat pie. It was curry based and made with ground beef. He also made sausage rolls with fresh ground pork that were killer.

To try to explain some things: The Pie Cult is members who own a Breville Pie Maker and it's clone and love making mini-pies. They/we have a Purple Mothership that visits our new recruits, beaming rays of goodwill and pies.

But it's okay, the rest of the folks are just regular crazy
