Hello from a game developer

Hello awesome people, and a big thank you for having this amazing forum.

Its pretty nice to see so many people here that love food and everything to do with food.

A little bit about myself. My name is Roman, and I live in San Jose, CA. For 18 years of my life I developed video games as a digital artist for various big and small companies.

One huge perk while I was working in that industry were daily lunch trips with coworkers to so many various restaurants. I must say thats when I started to love food even more.

I was born in Russia, well actually Soviet Union at that time. Oh the 80's. Soviet Union had lots of republics under its wings, and each republic had their own cuisine. But growing up in Moscow, we had very limited variety of delicious food. However summer was always the Xmas to me hahaha, fresh veggies, fruits, and trips to outdoors for grilling meats.

When I came to US, first thing I had to fill myself up was the "evil" fast food lol, simply because we didnt have any American style fast food when I was young. And of course with time I discovered a world, actually more like a Galaxy of amazing food in this awesome country.

18 years later here I am, cooking daily, and trying out so many new recipes with my wife.

The coolest part of living today is the social media we have where we can be united with so much information. Its insane for sure.

Today, I do food blogging and recently just created my very own youtube channel dedicated to food and culinary fun.

But I'm very glad to be now part of this great forum.

Thank you again guys for this opportunity.

Welcome, and jump right in anywhere to have some cooking fun. A good starting point is always the daily dinner thread. Somebody is always eating there, and often cooking.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
