Hello from Wisconsin...

To follow the true welcoming spirit of this forum, I wanted to introduce myself.

I live in a town called Eau Claire (Prounounced "Oh Claire") located in Central Wisconsin with my amazing wife Sarah, and our two kittens (Frank & Bean). We are currently expecting our first child in January and are looking forward to starting a family. I own a Web Development & Consultation Firm. My hobbies include Camping, Woodworking, Period Restoration, Spoiling my wife, and of course, Cooking..

Which brings me to the real important information:

My background in cooking is relatively simple. I started out learning from my mother and grandmother. In 1999 I had an opportunity to apprentice under a local Korean Chef. I then worked in the restaurant for 4 years as a chef. While I enjoyed the career, it didn't work well for me to work nights and weekends. From my apprenticeship, I began studying Italian cuisine and finally more dynamic asian cuisine. Since leaving the restaurant business I have spent more time studying baking, candymaking, and outdoor cooking (Smoking and Grilling)...

Well, that's about enough about me.. I am looking forward to learning even more, and possibly sharing where I can. I am also looking forward to getting to know everyone..

-Brad

Thank you all for the warm welcoming... I have a few home made Pizza recipes that are a little out of the ordinary. I am mostly a fan of trying different crusts.

My favorite Home-Made pizza is my BBQ Chicken Bacon Ranch with a Pretzel Dough crust and the other is the BLT Pizza with Ranch dressing..

Oh well, thanks again for the kind welcome. I look forward to learning more and sharing what I do know..

-Brad
