Hi, folks,

I posted a few replies on other threads before I saw this one - oops! Great site! I'm a self-taught caterer/sous chef/soon to be kitchen manager at a new restaurant; also the mom of a 25 year old son paralyzed with a spinal cord injury for three years. So I'm just getting back into the food business after a 3 year hiatus getting him through rehab and back at home, and finally getting competent aides.

Son and hubbie are both vegetarians, so have learned lots of ways to prepare veggie 'comfort food' meals for them using commercial meat substitute products. What a challenge! I'm not a vegetarian - love my steak once in a while!

My favorite foods are Southern cooking - lived in S.C. for 15 years; Japanese dishes; and just about anything else!

Again, great site!
