Have you taken any cooking classes or been in a cooking club?

Yes. I started taking cooking classes periodically in 2004 or so here at The Seasoned Chef. I have taken both baking and cooking classes as well as a 2 part advanced skills cooking class. I started following my mom around in the kitchen when I was 5 and never stopped cooking and baking. Everything I make is 100% homemade. I considered going to culinary school in VT about a year ago but it was too expensive. My knife skills could use some help but I know that comes with practice.

Do you enjoy browsing cookbooks or cooking magazines?

YES. Cooks Illustrated is great and usually my first go to source, but I love almost any cookbook or cooking magazine. I don't have to have recipes in order to make something. A lot of times, I just use a recipe as a guide and make the dish my own.

Do you enjoy the fun and sharing of cooking with others?

I enjoy cooking/baking and then I get immese satisfaction out of knowing other ppl enjoy what I made. Plus I love to see and try what other ppl make.

Are you aware this group is limited to those with cooking experience and who consider themselves pretty decent cooks?

Yes. I can do pretty much whatever I want in the kitchen. For Thanksgiving 2011, I cooked an entire homemade meal and 2 homemade desserts for 9 ppl. It was a ton of work but I loved it. So did everyone else! : ) I come from a long line of great cooks on both sides of my family. Looking forward to a meetup soon. I'm excited to find this group.

Introduction

I'm Allison and I LOVE to cook and bake. I haven't had much experience with a grill but would like to learn. I am happiest in the kitchen.
