Hello!

Hello my name is Ollie. I live in the SF Bay Area with my wife & 2 cats. I am a graduate of culinary school but am not a practicing chef at the moment.

Spent a lot of my childhood in the kitchen and in front of the tv watching cooking shows on PBS.

Hope to learn and join in discussion.

Welcome, Ollie!  Come on in and join the conversations!  

 

Do you practice your culinary skills at home, or are you a bit too busy with other pursuits?  What PBS shows did you especially like to watch?

Smithy I do the basics at home nothing too fancy. I never fully went into culinary when I graduated culinary school. I graduated in 2008 just as the recession started. I could not make the jump in careers due to financial responsibilities.

My favorites was Yan Can Cook, then Jacque Pepin and finally Julia Child.
