HAPPY 1(One) YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!  Please send only "that paper" to the Workshop.

One year ago today the Workshop opened for blogging bidness.  Since that fateful post more than 1,000 (one thousand) people have visited the Workshop.  Or, 1(one) person has visited over 1,000 (one thousand) times.  Not exactly sure.  There have been 37 (thirty seven) posts, this marking the 38th (thirty eighth).  The Cooker's profile has been viewed 100 (one hundred) times and given disappointment 99 (ninety nine) of those times.  Cookers have come to the Workshop from all over the world and hopefully left with something worthwhile.  In a nutshell, that was 2009.

Welcome to Twenty 10.  You will be happy to know that the Cooker survived the coming of the New Year, by hiding safely and securely in the Apocalypse Bunker as has become his tradition.  While safely ensconced in the concrete walls, the Cooker had some time to reflect on the previous year and look forward to the coming one. 

2009 has been been retroactively referred to as The Hatching: The Birth of The Cooker.  Twenty 10 shall be titled Mind Blow:  The Rise of The Cooker.  The Cooker's rise will be marked by some of the following:

  • More posting with more regularity.  There is nothing worse than feeling a little, you know, irregular.
  • A logo sure to kick its way through your retinas and then make its home in your memory while making long distance phone calls.
  • Recipes.  For your nerves.
  • The possibility of a Ingredient Workshop product line to help the world enjoy delicious.
What would you the Workshop visitor like to see more of or less of?  Are you scared of the possibility of old, French, peen when visiting?  Or does that excite?  Bring da ruckus.

P.S. You can find The Ingredient Workshop on Facebook if you are of that persuasion.


  1. I've always enjoyed these posts, and I look forward to this new year of culinary adventures.
    If you need a logo designed, I do have a degree in that kind of thing and it would be totally cool to do one for this blog.
