I'll get started with introductions - Hi, I'm jerod, and I love to cook!
 
What a great Idea guys. I think this will be a great place when we get it loaded with recipes ! I also like the format it is very close to the v-bulletin format.Thumbs Up

glad you like it, jerod! we think this is really going to take off, and i am sure glad that we decised to give it a go. still a little tweaking here and there, but the basics are up and i think we've got something good going here.

ya i think you may have it a home run here. I would suggest a misc area or something along those lines in each continent area. Just so if something doesn't fit in a specific region.

i was thinking something along those lines. not sure exactly what, but i will come up with something. pretty soon, all of those separate forums/regions.countries will have descriptions underneath them that will calrify quite a bit. after that, i'll see if i can some up with a misc. section for each place, if needed. i'll also be adding a few that are currently missing.
 
also for some foods, we're going to be making separate forums. an example is american barbecue, which is nation-wide but certainly its own style of food - uniquely american, i guess you could say.
 
keep checking in and feel free to post anything you like ~

actually the one bread item that haunts me is fry bread ...years upon years ago i used to know a recipe by heart ,i'm not sure how i forgot it ( tho i suspect  that car that slammed into mine kinda scrambled my yolk is part of it ) when i was young and first out on my own i  basically lived on wild game and that fry bread ,while i have tried many recipes for fry bread since (most are good btw) none have quite been like that one ,of course since i have learned that baked type bread is better for me i give my bread machine a day off once inna while and dig out the cast iron ,my step mother had a similar recipe for tortilla's ( she also made the best ones i ever had but then she prolly made them twice a week for most of her life )i tried to write it down a few times but it was always "a pinch of this two handfuls of that etc "and of course mine never turned out as well ( must be the years of practice lolz )

Hi everyone! My name is Tony from the northeast of the US.
 
I love to fire up the smoker and pump out some great BBQ! I have a GOSM that runs on propane. (don't think they run anything else)
 
I recently have gotten back into the great art of homebrewing. I have a few beers completed and in bottles. They keep getting better and better!
 
I recently recieved a kitchen aid for my kitchen and have been dying to do some sausage with it. I am truly a newb when it comes to making sausage.
 
Thanks for the warm welcome John and Ron!

Date Posted: 17 March 2010 at 08:49
hey, tony! welcome to the FOTW! i have a feeling you're going to enjoy it here.
 
brewing, sausage and barbecue - three great things that go great together! we are building a good library of sausage recipes here and have plans to get even more soon. also, i have a pretty good library of sausage recipes at my other website, http://www.baitshopboyz.com - www.baitshopboyz.com . simply go to the recipes section and do a search under "sausage" (be sure to search TOPIC SUBJECTS, not POSTS)!
 
looking forward to seeing some great new england recipes and also be sure to let us know if there is a regional or international dish that you would like to try ~

Based in the North-East of England, not an area noted for it's cooking achievements Wink.

I like BBQs and cooking Asian meals, though struggle to get all the ingredients (though it is easier these days).

Will post up a traditional British dish next week -> Chicken Tikka Masala

All the best
