I have been listening to Stella Culinary/Free Culinary School podcast for quite a while now. I am really enjoying all the videos being produced currently. I haven't posted in the forum much so I might as well introduce myself. I am a mechanical engineering student at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. I am currently in AZ doing an internship for this semester and summer. I didn't start cooking until I started college. I reallized that I wanted to eat good food but I didn't want to go to resturants all the time so I decided to learn how to cook. I quickly became very passionate about cooking and I really like experimenting and trying new things. My "go to" tecniques are sauce making, braising and deep frying.
When I was in Honduras and had made a side trip to Guatemala, I found a coffee jelly/jam that I eventually used for a new recipe I developed. Now that I'm back in the States, I can't get that jelly any more, so I have been looking into making some myself.
