Thank you everyone in St. Louis, inspiring to be around people in other fields who love to cook! I feel now there was so much more to say!
And thanks everyone for the good comments.
UPDATE: In respose to rockandroller. These are cooking demos in viking's very nice teaching kitchens. I do three a course meal, very much home cooking food, talk about cooking, a lot about the fundamentals and making cooking at home better. so i focus on base recipes, recipes that teach fundamental techniques so that once you know the base, you can take it any direction you want. Talk, cooking, questions, and food, that's what the demos are all about.
