Live from New York, it's... me!

Hi. I'm Dave, 29, and I find cooking therapeutic and hugely enjoyable. Cooking for others? Even better. I love watching television programs and films about food and especially foods from other cultures and countries that I've never tasted before.

I live on my own in what I consider the culinary capital of the world and am not afraid to spend some money to have mind-blowing culinary experiences both at home and out in public.

Other interests: ice hockey (season ticket holder!), politics, wine/vodka/tequila, and the history of New York in the larger context of American History.

Nice to meet you all.

Oh my goodness, you will fit right in. I too believe cooking is theraputic, especially chopping -- totally relaxing. I also love to cook for others or everyone. Funny, I am not a season holder but my youngest son grew up playing hockey, so guess what a hockey Mom does?? Besides go to all the games and cook for everyone.

You will fit right in and we are so glad to have you here.

Have fun and enjoy!

Actually, I have only live here for about 4 years. I do love it here because the people are so friendly and always treat you like family--I have melted several times though, literally. I grew up in Northern Michigan on Lake Superior and that is where my children also grew up. Yes, hockey is big cause winter was long and what else does one do?

I found the site through a random link I clicked and was also wondering if there are any parts of the site that you all enjoy the most.

Welcome to DC...favorite places on site? The daily, "What's for Dinner?" lots of great ideas there. No recipes, but those you can ask for or find in their own thread by category.
