Ok. I started learning to cook at age 8. My first teacher was my grandmother, who had been born in 1917 (I was born late in everyone's life), and who taught me the basics the old fashioned way. Hence I'm happy to say I can cook anything, but still I love searching as well as sharing new ideas, while retaining the old tried and true ways with food. As for interests I've too many to list here, but will say most are in the creativity genre. What else is there to say?
