I think the subscribe to thread notifications still are not working here. Im not much on the big city stuff myself either.. grew up in Chicago and other than missing some of the food have no plans on ever moving back. New York is almost identical and is compared quite often to the foods served in the city out here from everything ive seen in the media etc. Great food and nice place to visit im sure but im more of a simple life kind of guy. For sure a black plate would jazz up looks,Presentation is nice but im no chef and its all about the taste and keeping things simple for me.
Never really planned on sharing much on cooking but this thread has been where i add cooking related stuff on a rc site so here's a quick vid of something i made a couple weeks ago. I have given thought quite a while back about starting a thread in the forums instead of the blog for general chat on food and sharing pics and videos.
