I just love to have found this forum. Please, bear with my poor English, if I seem a bit shy it is because it is not easy for me to write in English (oh, but my Spanish is just wonderful ;)

If somebody needs to know something about Spanish cooking (recipes, ingredients, etc.), I'd be very happy to be useful. I also can answer questions about food from Russia and Cuba (don't ask, it is a long story :) )

I am wishing to learn a lot here! I am a serious amateur cook (is there such a thing?), and love learning every bit.

Thanks for standing me.

Welcome Adler. I too am a serious amateur cook and yes, there are lots of us who can proudly claim that title.
My family and I spent a fabulous 2 weeks in Spain a few years ago. The Spanish people treated us very well and we had some excellent food and wine.
You will enjoy this site and you will learn a lot. I know I have.

Welcome aboard Cristina!

You remind me of a tour guide I once had in Fuenjirola: he was Cuban, studied Russian in Cuba and Russia, and then settled in Spain where he spent most of his life. Anyone you know? (kidding!)

Well, we're very fortunate to have you here.
As Cape Chef suggested, you should start a tapas thread in the Recipe Exchange. I would also love to hear you talk about Spanish cheeses.
