Hi JJ! And THANK YOU so very much!
While I'm not a chef and most certainly won't ever pretend to be, I do eat very very very well, or with a palate for exotic, healthful and minimalistically prepared food that's paired with fantastic "old world" wine.
My humble smoking rig is more like a toaster oven compared to the impressive machinery and crafted skill that is demonstrated on this site by everyone else, and so I'm humbled, flattered, and delighted that all have been so receptive and kind to such a neophyte and to one who arranges such simpleton style meals and on each day.
That being said, it is through writing, speaking and conducting entertaining and unique wine tastings, that I do share my passion for "finding the magic" in whatever one wishes to eat, with the masses.
I read somewhere here that we aren't supposed to share blogs or sites or links or any such things, and so that's fine. I'm not here to market but am here to simply share my daily passionate "magnificent obsession" with likeminded folk and am adoring the group! It seems like some genuine and very real and very food appreciative people! Fantastic stuff!
In any event, while ocean doings captivate 5 days out of 7 for my palate, or during most times, we're moving into game meat season (my other passion) and so here is a huge CHEERS to that, and to exciting and quite lovely and still healthful, exotic meats and treats to come!
Thanks for such nice words, as it's always daunting joining chat groups online and being so new. This bunch does indeed seem just absolutely fabulous though! Happy midweek!!!!!
Cheers and warm wishes, Leah
* And based on YOUR handle, should I address you as "Chef?"
