Hello,

I'm Wagner Aguiar, and I heard about this forum from the first Modernist Cuisine book and thought it was a fantastic initiative. I've been looking for somewhere that enabled me to connect to cooks from around the world, and it felt to be a good try. My interest in cooking began some years ago, during my graduation in Civil Engineering. At first, I cooked to impress my girlfriend, but when I noticed, I already loved it. Cooking was essential to me during my Master's in Material Science in one of the most stressful periods of my life. Nowadays, I am a Civil Engineering Professor for almost five years, but since the last one, I realized that what I really want to be is a cook. This why I got so excited about this forum when I heard of it. Change my profession won't be easy, mainly because I don't really know people in the industry.
I have a particular interest in modern cooking. The concept of using science to improve the flavor of foods willingly amazes me.

Hello and welcome, Wagner. I too am interested to see what you have to say about the food you cook there, and about your journey from engineer to cook. There are a fair number of scientists and engineers on this forum! If you have any questions about how to use the forum software, or whether or where to post something, feel free to ask a host (I am one) by PM or email.

Thank you so much Smithy, I'm really excited to learn more about cooking, besides try to find opportunities to begin my cook carreer.
