Name at least three of your favorite cuisines

Ethiopian, Korean, Japanese, Thai, Italian, French, Burmese, American, Mexican

What is your favorite vacation spot?

The whole world, anything that involves adventure.

Describe the most memorable meal you've ever had

The 2nd time I had Ethiopian. The first time was indifference, the 2nd time was LOVE. The way the fish flaked off into my injera, the fassolia (string beans/carrots), but mostly the injera...the way it stretches, is sour, the way that one side is filled with popped bubbles/holes and the other side isn't...oh tastiness in my mouth.

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

Intermediate Advanced. I am queen of putting whatever is in the fridge together. No particular style, just work with what I have. I think I do a tomato based pasta sauce pretty well.

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

Sports + food is ideal for me. I will run many miles to get to good food. I love to think about it - daydreaming, my life generally revolves around what and when I get to eat, if I am being kept from eating whenever it is I want, I feel like someone is being inhumane to me, I do love to cook, but seriously most of all, I love to eat it. I eat slowly and take forever. I HATE being rushed with my food. I enjoy the different experiences within one meal...from how hot it can come out to the changing temperatures as my meal progresses. I am ok with it all. I love textures, spices, smells, tastes...it's all very sensorial for me. Mmmm food.

Introduction

Hi Sally. I am a displaced New Yorker looking to find some people to eat with. I am potentially interested in the French cooking class coming up and wanted to join your group first, but also wanted to ask if I could bring interested friends?
