Red face Hello from Indiana

Hi,

In 1995, I started eating macrobiotically. Prior to this time, any cooking I did was basic- cooking noodles for example. I ate raw veggies for 10 days because I didn't know how to cook them. Eventually I got brave and tried a stir fry. I also learned how to cook rice.

I have since stopped the macrobiotics but I haven't lost the excitement I feel when I cook. I am interested in doing some sugar casting and also some experimentation with molecular gastronomy. I whole heartedly recommend the book The Elements of Taste anyone who wants to think of food in terms of taste values that can be combined in unusual ways.

I watched the whole season of Top Chef- couldn't *stand* Marcel but in the first part of the finale when he used xantham gum I thought, "cool" and finally took notice of that little thing he kept saying he was an expert in. I am so jazzed- cooking and science- not too unlike macrobiotics... just different jargon pretty much. (And more precision with molecular gastronomy).


Thanks everyone for the welcome!
