    I believe I bought my first from either Tony or Elderly back in 2005 (going back too many years to remember). I bought my second one this year directly from Tony (or his website).

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I did a pasta dish with artichokes and bacon last week. It was a "empty cupboard" dinner. Turned out pretty good. I like to fry artichokes in a cast iron skillet.
