Someone, I believe it was the former owner/founder, came to FOODTV message board when it was closing down. But there was the link, visited her, liked it, and stayed.

I know after "that person" made "those posts" on FN and it became apparent that FN didn't have a modirator ... some of us started talking about finding a new home. When FN announced they would rather give up the FN Forum than have a modirator ... a LOT of use started looking and discussing alternatives.Seems the "cream" rose to the top and came here!

Yep, I came here from food network, after they dismissed the food chat, and after that person spammed them they decided to discontinue the forum on there. Foodnetwork forum was fine until that point. I never understood why one person making spam would have caused foodnetwork to discontinue the forum. Regardless, thats history now. DC is just fine for me.

Mine's a story straight out of left field....DH cooked 'his' beer-battered fish one night for dinner. I couldn't eat all mine, so wrapped in plastic wrap and into the fridge. The next day I tried the left-over fish for lunch. It was so full of amonia that each time I bought it to my mouth, it would take my breath away. Only had 2 mouthfuls, then binned it.

Being slightly hypochondriac, I googled in "seafood poisioning". One of the sites listed was a thread from discuss cooking.....Thank goodness for bad fish

Stumbled across DC while looking for a recipe. I liked the informal nature of the site & couldn't help but laugh at some of the posts. Decided after a couple of days reading that I should register & here I am.

Don't know anythong about epicurious so I'm off to check it out.

There is no shortage of characters here, Bucky included. It's all good fun & good people.
