Welcome to Chef Talk Toyman!

What kind of food do you enjoy? :)

yes indeed, WELCOME.

So is it "antique cooking" that interests you, or 2 separate things, "antiques" and "cooking?" (as you mention in your profile)

You've already made at least one really good post (sun dried tomatoes), so you're getting into the swing of it here. You'll like it, believe me. Lots of really useful give-and-take.

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.

I only restore if it is the only solution. As with most antiques, it is best to leave them in original condition even if the condition is poor.
