Hi From the UK

Hi All,

So its kind of late to start learning but thats what i am trying. 33 now and always been a workaholic (i work in IT) and over recent months worked every hour on projects but my company although they appreicated the effort wouldnt reward it so i have decided to take back my evening's and weekend.

With all this new found time my wife is happy to at least see me but i have decided to start to learn to cook.

Cooking knowledge - i can things that come out of packages and simple things but thats it pretty much.

One of the first things i want to cook is selfmade burgers / wedges and salad with a dressing but i will post that in another thread.

Hoping to learn lots.

Thats the intro ;)

Phil
