Tourist or Denizen?

Lizard | Feb 18, 2007 10:47 PM

I have recently relocated from Brooklyn, NY to a small town in Scotland. The drastic change in the culinary landscape is, to say the least, the greatest of my culture shocks. I am managing with the small pleasures I find.

I decided to check out the Chowhound UK/Ireland board for any possible resources. Apart from learning that this might as well be called the 'London and other places' board, I have started to wonder about the make-up of the posters here. Is this primarily a tourist board i.e. (I am visiting... and where did you eat when you visited....) or are there residents who pop in for discussion in the same way that happened on the NYC and OB boards? I ask because from what I've seen so far, it is the former.

So, is this the case? Are there locals? And what does one do in the county of Fife anyway (apart from enjoying the glorious cycleways and the great outdoors)?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
