Hello from Indiana, USA

4 posts in this topic

Greetings to all.

My name is Devin, I am a ex-prep cook, ex-grill cook, who was sadly disillusioned long ago by the cooking industry after working for restaurant after restaurant where the only new or different things they were willing to try, were ways to lower the cost at the expense of quality and taste. I am sure many of you have been there.

So now I am just a foodie who cooks and experiments to his hearts content in his own kitchen.

Hi Devin.  Welcome to eG.

 

Yep, the dumbing down of food/restaurants is a sore point.  Unfortunately, I guess all businesses have to obey the laws of economics.  Some just seem to manage it better than others.

 

You'll have fun here.  Heaps of experimenting foodies (although you may find some - myself not included - cringe a little at that term!).

 

Dive in and enjoy the community.

Welcome Devin - moved to my current location from Indy 11 years ago - miss those tenderloin sandwiches.  There are restaurants out there that are more artist than money.  Hard to find but they exist...especially when you open it yourself ;)

Hi, Devin and welcome.  My husband, daughter and I lived in Batesville IN for a couple of years in the late 80's/early 90's.  I, too, miss tenderloin sandwiches.  Also the pie tables at community meals.  And sublime fried chicken.  A friend who is originally from Alabama but now lives in Indianapolis calls Indiana the northern most southern state in the US!
