Name at least three of your favorite cuisines

Italian, Indian, French, Thai

What is your favorite vacation spot?

Europe - there are so many more places in Europe that I want to visit like Greece, Spain, Prague, etc...

Describe the most memorable meal you've ever had

A long time ago I had dinner at Sona in L.A. and we didn't know what the chef was going to serve us for each course. It also had a wine pairing with each course. It felt very fancy and luxurious but the plates were so tiny that we were stil hungry afterwards!! Also I had a great dinner at Ben & Jack's steakhouse in New York. I had a 2 pound lobster that was so amazing I ended up eating the entire thing! I recently went to Strip Steak in Vegas and they served a shredded, sauteed brussel sprout dish that was amazing. And I don't even like brussel sprouts.

What is your cooking level? Beginner, intermediate, advanced, professional, etc... and which type of cuisine is your specialty?

Beginner on some foods, intermediate on others

Please tell the group a little bit about your interest in food and cooking

I like hearty and gourmet food but I ususally cook only healthy things - stir fry vegetables with chicken, fish, etc. I want to learn to cook more decadent foods. I would much rather eat it than cook it but I love a nice dinner with good wine so I want to learn how to make fabulous dinners of my own so I have dinner parties.

Introduction

I love dining on good food and would like to learn how to cook more dishes. I hope to do more cooking now that I have moved much closer to work and eliminated my hour commute.
