Hi everyone, Cooking is my thing as it is probably yours. My bookshelves sag with cookbooks. I have a rather unique job as I am a Studio Teacher near L.A. That is I work in the entertainment business and teach or tutor the children who are working in a film, TV, theater, commercial, etc. CA law says a studio teacher must be present when a minor is working in entertainment. Yes, even at a rodeo. But I've never done that one. Hollywood gossip is off limits to me so please don't ask! I'm hoping to learn a lot from people who are passionate about cooking. I cook a lot of Italian foods. Very simple cooking as it is in Italy.
