I found out about GDNA thru following Sam Houston(aka QforQ) on Twitter after he was mentioned by someone. That and the 'Tweet my Gaming' advert that shows up on Twitter. So apparently the Twitter integration strategy was a good one for GDNA. Also, great thread title.

So what cuisine is your particular program focused on? Or is it more of a general cooking skills degree? I'm partial to Asian cooking (loves me some curries) but I've had some wonderful stuff from all sorts of cuisines. Tell me: you a subscriber to Cook's Illustrated? Best. Magazine. Ever.

Back to gaming: Greetings! Game (and cook) on!

Right now it's just a general studies course, but I personally want to focus more on English cuisine. Things like Banoffee Pie (Bananna and toffee hence Banoffee), Cornish pasties (which on the outside look like fruit turnovers but are filled with beef, onions and potatoes), and any dish that has Licolnshire sausage as the main dish (best. damn. sausage. ever).

That sort of thing. I think maybe it's because of the history and the experimentation that some of the dishes went through (good example would be a Knickerbocker Glory, which in america is simply called a Parfait. Which one would you want to eat/try first though?)

From there I don't know, maybe try my hand at more italian recepies and maybe something thai or japanese. I'll take it one at a time, see what I'm good at, see what I'm GREAT at, and see what I need to build upon and study/experiment with some more. But all in all I'm having a blast doing it.

And yes, I am a subscriber to several cuisine magazines. I'd consider myself an kitchenknob (what my last year's teacher called lazy/awful chefs) if I wasn't

Next to gaming, cooking is a major passion of mine. Not open-a-restaurant passion, but passion all the same. I love watching people enjoy the dishes I've made, especially if I came up with them at the last minute with maybe an hour or so prep time.

Glad to see you're concentrating on English cuisine. It gets a bad rep that was probably deserved at some point, but some of the best chefs in the world are starting to come out of England, and the food is being elevated far beyond its origins.

One cuisine that I'd love to master is southern BBQ. Memphis style ribs, carolina style pulled-pork, texas style brisket, hush puppies, collard greens. You know, the stuff that makes cardiologists make that little cash-register "ka-ching" sound.

When did this become a forum about cooking?

You did ask what area of cooking the OP was focusing on. Don't tell me you've forgotten already?

Welcome to gamerDNA!

As resident badass, I would urge you to really dive in head first with this gang. I am rather new myself, and have found the only way to survive is to get into the deep waters.

Enjoy your stay!
