Greetings from Northern VA

Hello all, this is post #1 for me.

I figure I'm pretty decent at a few things: classical French, Chinese, Japanese (sushi), canning, preserving, making charcuterie (bacon, dried sausages, prosciutto, salami, bresoala, pancetta, etc).

Looking forward to some interesting discussions.

Hi, stooxie. Welcome to DC. For many years Buck and I lived in the Washington, DC area so we are familiar with the northern Virginia area. Just where are you there?

Just take some time and settle down and join all of us here and share your food knowledge and comments. We're glad you've found us.

I'm in Vienna.

I actually want to go in to business making charcuterie and I even have a restaurant that wants to buy it off me. Problem is that I'm convinced that the FDA/USDA will laugh themselves silly at the prospect. I only source my meat from local farmers so all the nasty bugs (e.coli, foot and mouth, mad cow, etc), don't even enter the picture. Oh well, that's my story for right now.
