RE: Who's the expert?
I'm supposed to be a "EXPERT", worked at it for 50+ years as Chef, Consultant, Owner and Troublshooter all over the world, even had a radio show in Northern California, was on Johnny Carson Show, associated with James Beard and Craig Claybourne. Since becoming retired can instigate, advise and enjoy without so called confidential restraints. My professional eating experience was unmatched as I mamaged to achive 485 pounds, can anyone be more of a dedicated eater?. Now i'm down to 185 pounds, but that another story. I spend most of my time seeking out, trying to learn as much as possable about every ethinic food. This to me a advocation, hobby and most fun. This site, Saute Wednesday and Chowhound are my favorites. The Stern's have led me to many pleasurable experiences thru the years, expediting my quest, i've always wished for a daily updated "Road Foods" and it's now available. I'm going on a drive this autumm from Seattle to New York, with stops predicated on where a eating adventure waits, truly a "Road Food Journey", my last was with my wife and we drove for 3 months covering 16,000 miles, YUM. I've been fortunate in setting up and operating Jewish, American, Cantonesse, Peking,Japanesse. Korean, Italian, French,German, Bar-B-Que, Coffee Houses [ Americas First in NYC in 1962], Wine Bars [Honolulu Hawaii 1972] and almost anything Baked, Imported or Exported, even worked on the original USDA meat guide. So, in the future please be tolerent of my postings, and if I overdue them, just bring me down to earth, as i'm not used to being free. Irwin
