Hi all! I was excited to run across this forum when doing a random search for something on google, and have been enjoying browsing through some threads. I'm from the states...born in Indiana, lived in PA, then in Houston, TX (14+ years), and most recently in Santa Cruz, CA. Met my boyfriend in Cali, then moved across the ocean to give the relationship a chance. Guess it must be doing ok since we recently got married! Will be moving back to the states soon and will be nice to get back to the food. Food in Sweden, after the inititial newness of everything, is NOT that exciting. Restaurant service sucks terribly and food is very up and down...mostly down, with some exceptions, of course. I started my cooking experience by working at a cooking school, oddly enough. Central Market on Westheimer in Houston. After working there a year (great learning experience!!) I moved to CA and focused on baking. Worked at UCSC, a small restaurant, and two bakeries (small café/patisserie type places). Now I can add a Swedish Hotel, Bakery and Restaurant to my resume...but it's been a challenge here in Sweden, anyway!
