Jeff Chosid Intro


Recommended Posts

I’ve been married since 1977. I never went away to school or lived on my own. When I got married, I left my parent’s home and moved into our apartment. I went from my mother’s care to my wife’s care. Up until 2017, I could boil water, grill a steak and make bacon and eggs. 
That year, 2017, I decided to learn to cook. I took a few cooking classes at a local store (Kitchen Conservatory - St. Louis, Mo.), joined Web Cooking Classes and even attended a sauce class (La Cuisine Paris - Paris, France). I joined the wonderful online cooking school, French Cooking Academy. Cooking has become a passion and I prepare all of our dinners at home. I prep from 4:00 until 5:00. At 5:00PM, it’s a Martini and the news. At 6:00, I put it all together and serve at about 7:00PM.

Sounds like an excellent plan. 


One of our long-time members, gfron1, is the chef-owner of Bulrush, in St Louis. Have you had the pleasure of eating there?

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."


"...in the mid-’90s when the internet was coming...there was a tendency to assume that when all the world’s knowledge comes online, everyone will flock to it. It turns out that if you give everyone access to the Library of Congress, what they do is watch videos on TikTok."  -Neil Stephenson, author, in The Atlantic


"In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual." -Galileo Galilei, physicist and astronomer
