Greetings from sunny Costa Rica.

After reading a few threads, I wanted to introduce myself to this community. I look forward to sharing ideas with other forum members in regards to one of my favorite subjects, cooking. I have found many shows to be addictive and when I prepare a grand dinner for my girlfriend, I earn many points with her.

Happy cooking,


Richard

Hi Richard,

I'm kinda new here too.

I love Costa Rica -- only been once, but hope I get back someday. Where do you live?

Welcome!

Thanks sattie, Nice to meet you.


Rosann.

Pura Vida. I live in Rohrmoser. 15 minutes outside of San Jose. Hopefully, you can make it back soon. I may have some good suggestions for you and the rest of the members.




Best regards,



Richard

Costa Rica is pure paradise. Gallo Pinto "rice and beans" is a local favorite.

Hopefully, you can come and visit soon!



Richard

Tara

Hi Richard,

About 10 or so years ago, when my now husband and I visited San Jose (before embarking on a trip through parts of Costa Rica that I will never forget), he asked our hotel manager what was the most romantic place he could suggest for dinner. He said "TARA". So, we took a kind of scary cab ride up to the top of a mountain and ended up at this beautiful place, a white palatial building, hotel and restaurant, with beautiful grounds that had the most stunning view of the valley and San Jose's lights below. I think it was then that he decided to propose to me. It was almost surreal. We had a wonderful dinner and strolled the grounds taking in the scenery. VERY ROMANTIC. I think now that property has been sold and might be a totally different theme. Do you know where I mean?

Richard, we plan to make it there one day soon. We know people who have retired there and love it.
