I just wanted to gauge what kind of interest their is among San Franciscans like yourselves for forming an informal cooking group, for people who have a knack and love for cooking and eating "Asian" food - perhaps some experience in the family, the classroom or the kitchen with a particular cuisine and want to share your passion with others. I spent most of last year traveling across Asia eating street food and want to continue my pursuit by learning with others and having fun doing it.
I, for one, enjoy shopping at Clement St. markets and the like and try to use imported foodstuffs (but would love to learn more about the obscurities of Chinese cooking for people who are more familiar)
The idea is just preliminary at this point, to gauge what kind of like-minded folks are out there....
Give a holler if you are interested.
