Hi! new member from London

Hi everybody

I'm from London and I'm really into collecting cook books, I was a chef for 12 years in London and Paris and have my own cook book review site....looking forward to chatting.

Hello!!

I am always extra excited when a European joins, especially from UK! Even though we are a hugely cohesive international community here its nice to have more Londoners!

I am living in Italy rght now, but in UK I live in both London and the West Country and I get home sick every now and again!

Welcome, welcome....are you still a chef? May we ask where?

No longer a chef, gave up before the current celebrity chef boom! didn't want the grind of the job affect my love of food and cooking, now cook as a hobby and enjoy it more....worked in London (Langan's, Greens) and Paris.
