Hi everyone, I am new here, and I hear we're encouraged to introduce ourselves:

I'm from Canada and like to cook everyday when I'm at home (I travel quite a bit) - almost exclusively vegan since my partner is vegan. I enjoy good tools, and already have a few good knives (japanese, chinese and german) and some uncoated carbon steel cookware. I have good hand dexterity, and I believe my knife skills are fair. I keep them sharpened on a japanese whetstone.

I have been cooking more and more in the last two years and I think I have developped a good instinct, but I am looking to improve my cooking abilities by aquiring more knowledge and technique. I watch videos almost daily about cooking on Youtube and other platforms. Also, I almost never follow a recipe, but instead prefer to read multiple versions of a dish, memorize what's most important and then adjust the rest to my liking.

I am interested in finding some good cooking books to really understand ingredients, flavor, spices, etc... I am not interested in just following recipes, I also want to understand, so I can create my own. I tend to enjoy a lot traditional, simple dishes that really puts just a few ingredients in all their glory.

I travel quite a lot around the world, and often take notes of the local cuisine so I can get inspired.

Oh and... I am not really interested in desserts, I do not enjoy sugar that much.

Other culinary interests:
- Cutlery (especially japanese)
- Scotch / Whisky and other fine spirits, craft beer and wine
- Coffee (epresso)

Looking forward to read you!

Cheers
