Hi all, I chose my name as user name, pretty radical eh! Been out of cooking for a long time, gave up because of the long hours and rubbish pay. I never lost interest though and I am keen to keep up even if I only ever cook for the family. Having said that, I still think about opening another restaurant from time to time, and might even do it when we move to Spain. Nowadays I am interested in what the press lovingly call "ethnic" food, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, and the like.and I love Tapas style dishes and am working on building up my repertoire. I am into growing my own, so seasonality is becoming more important, the downside is you have to learn so many more recipes! I look forward to speaking with you on the forum, to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge, and maybe help a few others as well with the little I know.
