Default Which of you homebrewers are also home chefs?

Do you homebrewers like to cook too? I think that it was my love of cooking that led me to be a homebrewer. I cook almost every day. I enjoy creating recipes from scratch, and that is the way I approach homebrewing. I make up my own recipes based on what I've learned from others' recipes and from personal experience. I've always enjoyed brewing soups from scratch and brewing beer is a lot like making homemade soup I think. I put in more of what I like and leave out what I don't like. I've never been a "stick to the recipe" guy. Most of my soups, sauces and beers come out pretty good using this approach. Barbequeing is my other passion No surprise there ( see my user name) I enjoy slow cooking over charcoal and wood for that rich smoky flavor although I don't like smoked beers (Rauchbier).

I do most of the cooking at home. I've been in a rut for awhile where I don't want to spend a lot of time cooking but it's mainly because we have two kittens running around the house sucking up a lot of my time and energy. Smelling up the whole house with a nice roast or something similar while downing a bottle of wine in the kitchen is the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon for me, especially in the winter.

Someone once called me the Boby Flay of mead over on the mead forum....



No For Real....I think the fact that brewing and cooking are basically the same damn thing....I love them both.

Definetly love cooking. i love making things from scratch. Baking bread, and doing home made pizzas, etc.
i think the cooking and homebrewing seem to lead to one another.
Our homebrew club, Cascade Brewers Society not only has some great brewers, but some amazing chefs, as well.

Not even the tiniest little bit. In fact, unless it's heating something from a box or bag, my services are normally declined. We all agree on this one little issue.

Open flames exempted.

Food and beer go hand in hand. I have worked as a cook. Did not have the right temperament for it plus it drains you and makes it not as much fun.

Cooking at home is much better.

Love baking too, that definitely goes together with brewing in my opinion.

Nice crusty hearth bread...

hmm, time to feed the sourdough starter.
