    Same here. I love to cook. But like photography, I'm just not very good at it. Sunday I'm going to make a Chicken concoction inspired by Betty Crocker plus a fabulous Fennel and Craison wine vinegar salad. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
    All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. Choose the one that has heart.

    White wine goes better with developing film than the red wine. Any of the "Big Eight" will do ;o)

    I never mix liquor with darkroom work. But I am the most photographically knowledgeable foul-up you'll ever meet. I never poured in fixer first or anything like that. Just small. almost dyslexic, little simple foul-ups. "measure twice, cut once, re-measure, and re-cut" Then measure it again afterwards. If I don't work that way, then my work is probably worse than the lucky knucklehead who didn't know the first ting about it. Some people make straight A's and never crack a book. I'm the guy who has memorized the book and flunked anyway.

    With darkroom alcohol is kept @ beer or 2 but in the kitchen with the black vessel that I am NOT allowed to look @ a draught of white seems to make the whole process that much more pleasant. Wine can/is used as stop on occasion.

    I've often likened film photography to the 'slow food' movement which I understand to mean being careful with ingredients and enjoying the process with it's emphasis on time. I like to bake using sourdough and I see many parallels with film development and printing.

    Perhaps we should have a "favourite recipes" or "what I am cooking tonight" forum, because I too spend plenty of time in the kitchen!

    well you've have found out about HB and his molecular gastronomy by now, but as for caveman I was thinking along the lines of whack-a-mammoth-over-the-head-with-a-rock-then-spit-it-over-a-fire ... but then I read paul_c4x5's post and it sounds as if he has it nailed ...

    I second this idea. Part of why I don't like cooking is that I'm tired of everything I know how to cook. I need some new (and easy) ideas. I also now live somewhere where I can only get the basics. I picked on western PA for being very "meat and potatoes", but this area is even more so. Not being able to get good seafood is exasperating.
