Long time listener, first time caller here! My name is Johnny and I hail from beautiful San Diego, CA. I have no formal background in cooking, but I like to understand traditional techniques and flavor pairings before I go experimental on a dish. My exploits range from making pastas, curing and smoking charcuterie, to sous-viding holiday dinners. It was a new years resolution for me to get involved with "the community", so why not a food community! I look forward to contributing and exchanging ideas with everyone!
