I thought I should say hi in here before I start posting. This looks like a great site, as I love discussing food. Cooking/eating is my passion - I am so greedy! I starting cooking at about 13, mainly so that I didn't have to eat my mom's terrible food (sorry mom!), and have got interested in all aspects of food/drink over the past 5/6 years.
I'm 24 and live in Milton Keynes in the UK.
I can't really think what else to say so I will save the rest for the forums.
Welcome to DC, Alan...I was lucky to live in England for three years (decades ago) and actually grew to love much of the food there. I am now in tropical climes, but will never forget the courtesy and kindness of the people I met there. You will enjoy DC, I'm sure - kind, wise and compassionate people who will share their cooking secrets with you!
