Here to learn

Hi everyone! Just here to learn new techniques, recipes, etc. Love to cook, have had some catering experience, restaurant experience (in the kitchen and serving) and am the "family cook"...which means everyone calls me when they want to make something, when they need a cook for a special occasion, etc. Have an Italian background so I hold in my head alot of "old" recipes from my Nana who never wrote anything down (but I did when she cooked thankfully). I get excited about cooking and love to watch people eat my food. Hopefully, I'll learn alot from the rest of you and maybe be able to teach a few. Cooking is a learning experience and even the best chefs are always learning something new.

Welcome to the forum!

I love Italian food - I hope you'll share some of your family recipes. They're not a secret are they?

Nah, I don't believe in having "secret" recipes...if someone enjoys it, let them make it for themselves at their home. I hate when people say that they can't give their recipe because it's a "secret"...any good cook/chef can usually figure it out, lol. The only time that I feel a recipe should be secret is if a professional chef invents a certain dish. Sometimes a professional will tell you how to make it but they always leave just alittle something out, lol, but I feel privledged that they even shared part of it with me.

I agree completely! I have always thought secret family recipes were silly. I would rather think that my recipe was going to live on in lots of families than to just die off if my daughter didn't have the same interest in cooking that I have. Welcome to DC!
