Hello and Welcome

Postby tudorcook » Tue Aug 17, 2010 12:25 am

Hi and welcome to Cooking The Books, the forum for all topics linked to the live cookery at Hampton Court Palace.

First things first, this is in no way an official forum sanctioned by Historic Royal Palaces and the views expressed here are in no way representative of official thoughts and policy of Historic Royal Palaces.

Please take the time to register and become a full member of the forum, that way you can join in and post here rather than being limited to just reading the topics, you'll also get access to the 'off topic' chat forum that way too.
Once a member then feel free to ask questions, talk about the cookery events, share your favourite recipes or whatever else takes your fancy.

Please try to keep things friendly and family/work safe, please play nice :)

Above all, have fun!

Cheers

Tudorcook

Please remember the following when posting here.

1. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, just don't expect everyone else to agree with yours.

2. Politics and religion are two subjects that are fairly much guaranteed to start online arguments...please don't discuss them here unless in a history context.

3. As stated in the first post above, if any of the cookery team post here, they are expressing their opinions and theirs alone (see 1. too ;) )

4. Please feel free to post pictures with your posts, either upload them as attachments or link to them on an external site such as Flickr or Picasa. If you're not sure how to link to images then just ask and we can sort you out I'm sure. If possible please link to images with a longest side of around 600 pixels maximum to keep the board usable for those with small screens. Feel free to post thumbnail or reduced scale images that link back to the full size version too. This will stop those pages with images on from slowing to a crawl and will help users on slow/limited/mobile connections.

5. As with the blog, Twitter and Flickr images of all the cookery stuff, this is all done in spare time, so please be patient with any questions and requests.

6. If in doubt....ask.

7. CAUTION: When you use this forum you will encounter cookery team members posting here too. They do this in their own time and for similar reasons to you...fun, community, information, a laugh etc. as such it would be fair to say that you may well experience a much more 'off duty' turn of phrase and opinion from them than you might expect to see when they are in the kitchens!
So saying, this is a family friendly forum....play nice please!!

8. Check out the "rules" from the link at the sop to see the rest of the why's and wherefore's about the forum
