I'm new to the forum, name is Vinny and I'm 22 years old from Australia. Figured this would be the best place to extend my cooking knowledge and no longer have to indulge in bland food! I am a big fan of cooking shows, learning new things about cooking as well as trying new things - I've been cooking for myself and others at times since the age of 15-16 years old. I am a body builder (hobby wise not professionally) so bland food can be very common in this sport but I believe one can have the best of both worlds while eating clean but having still enduring in plenty of flavours! Professionally my goals for the future are Veterinary Science and/or Biomedical Science but hey, scientists have to eat too eh? What stumps me the most these days is finding the perfect combination of herbs and spices that'll mix with olive oil and make an amazing marinade, dip or sauce so I'll be scouring the forum for those. Thanks for having me!
