Chef-Brian says lets get cookin!

Hi all, Chef Brian here from northern Michigan. Just thought I'd stop in, register and start meeting like minded people. There are so few Chefs out and about so it's somewhat of a lonely occupation! So sometimes I do upholstery also, well actually I have a workroom a few blocks from here but not much reupholstery work to be done around here. Oh yea, fewer upholsterers than there are Chefs! Thank goodness for the internet where like minded people can get together from all over the world and chat about common issues. So HELLO ALL and lets get cookin!

Hi Chef Brian....Welcome! I love cooking too, and am interested in refinishing furniture, (be it restoring the wood or re-upholstering, I love the idea of it) (but haven't done anything great)...I think you're living the life I wish I was living!!!! ;) Sandyj

Chef Brian, I'm not a proffesional chef but have been honing my skills for almost 30 years. I love cooking, experimenting with food, and finding out through experimentation what does and doesn't work, and why. I have 4 cookbooks to my credit, self-published and sold on CD-ROM. And I live in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. So we're not that far apart. Glad to meet another Michigander who loves to cook. There are several on this site, as well as a host of great people from all over the world. You're in good company. Welcome.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
