Thanks for the welcome.
As to my cooking, I have recently become interested in ethnic cusines such as cajun and creole. I have also been trying to refine some soups and sauces, but my pleasure is working the grill. There is nothing like grilling!
As for the antiques, i collect, buy, sell, trade, antique toys (hence the nick ToYMaN)
Looks like you have your hands full, toyman. Owning and being a chef in a restaurant and hotel must be a lot of work. It's a wonder you have any time for antiques. I'm glad you're able to also spend time here. It's a great community.
