Welcome to another newbie. At least you had the nerve to post. Congrats. This is going to be fun. What's better than talking about food? Cooking and eating it of course.

Hello and welcome to DC! I too used to watch the Frugal Gourmet, and am a fan of both Good Eats and Bobby Flay. Right now I am looking at a cookbook (or rather trying to get DW to look at it for Fathers Day) by Mario Batali called Italian Grill.

First Ribs, welcome to a wonderful family of great chefs in their own right. The people you'll find in here are genuine and very helpful. Glad you found this web site.

I watched Julia from age 6. She interested me even then. I've watched several chefs over the years, many I can't even remember. The ones who inspire me now are the really imaginative ones, like John Besh or Michael Simons [many who are on Iron Chef America for instance] or ones whose names are now escaping me. The food I like to cook best is home cooking. I like honest food. Nothing pretentious just good old fashioned really full of flavor food. Being Norwegian and having grandparents that I watched who mentored me in cooking, gave me an edge in the proper way to season etc. Baking, cooking, experimenting they all give me great pleasure in the kitchen, yours or mine....
This Jeff Smith? Many chefs have inspired me too but not him. You can find out more about this now deceased ex minister, here.
