Hi all,

 

Not quite a long time lurker but I have been looking on and off the forum for a few years before this decision to register and [hopefully] get involved. I originally heard of the forum through a book - Craft Cocktails at Home - which was an excellent read.

 

There are so many potential topics here that I don’t quite know where to start: I’m part-time home brewer, main cook and baker-in-chief (when I find time). Particularly interested in scientific tidbits but also following along with what people are making; ive noted a lot of soups etc for breakfast?! 

 

Looking forward to to getting more involved.

Welcome! I spent a few months in York some years ago, exploring the city and general environs of Yorkshire. Perhaps it wasn't a gastronomic capital, but I certainly enjoyed (and gained a few pounds on) the fish and chips and ale...and good English breakfasts. :) 

 

Jump right in to any topic you wish, and if you have questions about the forum working don't hesitate to ask, either by PM to a host or in the Moderation and Policy Discussion forum.

We've made one trip to England and fell in love.  That trip was London, Cotswolds and a little south and west.  Our next planned trip (which was cancelled due to my mother's ill health) was to be to points north - York, the Dales, Hadrian's wall, the Lake District - as much as we could fit in to 2 weeks.  We still hope to make the trip and I am looking forward to your posts more than I already was.  Any surroundings that you can sneak into the edges of your food pictures would be welcomed by me!  And once you are comfortable, a food blog would make me a happy girl!

thanks for the book recommendation 

 

will likely download and check it out over the weekend 

 

the author doesn't seem to be a professional cook / bartender but is this MIT engineering graduate with both BS and MS degrees 

 

I wonder if he learned drinking in college after studying like 10-12 hour a day or something and needed to relax

But he’s a member of eG!  Hasn’t visited in quite a while but his posts are still accessible.

I walked Hadrians Wall some years ago. Very envious that you will be discovering it in the near future!

I would be interested to hear your thoughts - I loved the book.

 

Thanks for the warm welcome, all.
