Welcome to the forum. As you say anonymity is great for enabling people to write without worries.
I am not a cook but really appreciate anyone who cooks a meal for me. I was in Melbourne all last week. Far too cold for a Queenslander but I enjoyed being with various family members and friends and most of all having meals cooked for me. Anytime time you are in Brisbane you are welcome to practice your cooking skills at my home.
I hope you enjoy your time here on the forums. It's always good to have extra people around.
