    Hi all,

    I stumbled upon this forum by searching things about japanese knives/steel forging.

    Cooking is my hobby and I practice it as often as I can, but being a programmer, that's not very often thus far.

    Well, hote to learn much from all of you, and if possible help/teach someone if needed :)

    Cook At Home
    Hello Ipon and welcome to Chef Talk. You'll feel quite at home here, as you're typical of many of our community members: you love to cook (and cook whenever you can); you work in computers; you are eager to learn and to share what you know!

    Since you've already found we have a good forum on knives (boy, do we have a forum on knives!), you'll be happy to know the other forums are as lively as that one: baking, cooking, equipment and cookbook reviews, and so on. The main Chef Talk site also has excellent cooking articles you shouldn't miss! One thing to keep in mind about the forums: the Professionals' forums are "read-only" for home cooks like you and me. We're welcome- encouraged, even- to read there as much as we like, but our posting must be saved for the General forums only. 

    Should I presume because of your knife preferences you also like Japanese cuisine? Or does your palate lead you to other cuisines as well? I know Croatia has been a crossroads of many cultures over the centuries, so you have a natural arena in which to play.

    We hope you enjoy taking part in the forums and exploring the site. Welcome!

    Regards,

    Mezzaluna

    Thanks for a warm welcome :)

    Unfortunately I have very little knowledge of japanese cuisine, as there is hardly any place in this region one can get in contact with that part of their culture. However, Croatia really is quite obviously influenced by other nations, most of all hungarian and turkish in north eastern regions (land), and italian on south western regions (sea) where people call weed amazing herbs like oregano, sage, dill, thyme, etc. that populate wast rocky fields.

    Japanese cuisine will have to wait for a little longer, as there is lots of local european delicacies that need to be explored first... :)

    Thank you, also, for a warning about professional part of forum, I appreciate it and respect that.
