I enjoy cooking and feeding myself and others. I see all of the junk on television, that turns food into a competition, and I cringe. To me, food should not be a competition, it should be a community. You help me get the results I want, and I help you get the results you want. Whether it is in methods, sourcing ingredients, or getting the right equipment and setup, you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours.
That is why I feel at home here. It is a sense of community (a global community), where we all strive to make improvements with each other, instead of in spite of each other.
A big ol' "Thanks!" and a hug, to everyone here that makes this forum feel that way.
