Hello, from Lafayette IN
« on: April 29, 2009, 07:52:24 AM »
I found this forum by way of the http://cheeseaday.blogspot.com/ blog

I've only ever made a couple fresh cheeses and just made my first aged a week or so ago. I've been lurking for a couple of days and I'm really impressed, and inspired by what you all are doing.

I also homebrew, make wine, bake sourdough, & food garden as much as I am able.

Welcome to CFO, Andrew!

You'll find a lot of like-minded folks out here.  I make wine, occasionally bake sourdough, and also produce many of the fruits and veggies my family eats.

It's a great hobby, although it is tough to wait for those aged cheeses.  I have a parmesan that I made last August - waiting until the end of June to make it.  Time passes quickly, though.

I look forward to getting to know you better.

Welcome Andrew. 

While this is a cheese forum, most here have other hobbies that run that gamut.

I am also a wine maker.  Actually, I still maintain that winemaking is my real passion and cheesemaking is just a dalliance..

Hello Andrew and welcome to the forum!

The only Lafayette I know is the one near me in Louisiana USA so I checked on google maps and true, there is another in Indiana USA! I think you are the first one in Indiana so I've just added a Geographic Board for you in case you have any local type info.

Again welcome!

Welcome aboard Andrew.

I am also a homebrewer! My biggest passions are sausage making and smoking meat but anything to do with cooking, producing or reserving food and making bread are in there! Making music is another passion.

I just got my hands on Michael Ruhlman's Charcuterie, and the meat grinder is on order. So it looks like sausage making will be my next obsession/hobby.

Ahh Andrew Sausage making is one of my passions! I have some great perfected recipes for salami, caprilcolla, and standard sausages on my website and forum. What goes better with cheese than a great sausage!

You'be picked a really good book to get stared with.

Welcome. I'd have to agree with Wayne if I knew what he said, he uses such big words sometimes. Anyway, welcome and hope you post lots of cheeses.

And some, I suspect, are into making up words, as well!

Correct me if I'm jibing in stupidity here, Wayne...

And I apologize for hijacking your thread, Andrew.  Sometimes we get up to hijinks.
