and realising, teaching students from many countries, that 'y'all' is, really, really an excellent word that has counterparts in other languages. why don't we have a plural you?
y'all come back now, ya hear? Very Happy

I thought it was "all y'all".

In Australia the generally accepted plural is 'Youse'. Rarely used, thankfully. It reminds me of a group of sheep!

Youse as in "youse guys" is sadly somewhat common in Saskatchewan too!

I shudder every time something says "youse".

Hello everyone! I stumbled upon Chocolate and Zucchini because it's featured on the website for domino magazine. I've been browsing the forums for a few weeks now. I know this is not a new sentiment, but I just want to say that I'm so pleased to see people from so many different places on this board, combining my two passions- food and culture.

To add to the "y'all/youse" discussion: I'm from Maryland, where neither is really common, but Northwest Florida (aka "lower Alabama") is fluent in y'all. Did anyone mention the posessive, as in, "I'll stop by y'all's house later." How weird does that look- two apostrophes in the same word??

Another member in the South USA. Very Happy

And in Destin, a cool place to vacation according to some I've talked to.

I really can't stand this Southern way of talking. It isn't English. That's my main complaint with the South. People around me all talk like idiots. The Alabama legislature should give out free copies of My Fair Lady or Pygmalion.

Welcome Katiuccia, the ranks of southerners grows daily, although apparently with at least some transplants.... I myself am, born & bred in Louisiana, with a brief side trip to Georgia, although my French/Cajun heritage has always been considered to be outside the mainstream of the "true south"
(yew fellers tawk funny). My wife however, is a true southerner born just a few miles up the road from you in Panama City. Her family now lives just north of Tallahasse in Georgia.

Destin Has a beautiful beach but it is a little built up for my tastes, before Ivan, I prefered P'cola, but now have fallen in love with St. George Island to your west ...any way, welcome

Welcome Pesto Man and Katiuccia!

Pesto Man, I look forward to your views on Farmer's Markets and gardening in general! Both are topics of interest to me.

On the "Youse" topic - that one floats around here and I cringe everytime I hear it. Due to my proximity to the Canadian border (150 miles as the crow flies) we also get a lot of "eh" tacked on at the end of sentances. Urk. Rolling Eyes

Someday I hope to visit both New Orleans and Paris! Very Happy

"Eh!" is so common in Canada I've even heard Francophones use it. I certainly do and can't really think of anyone who doesn't! Odd isn't it, these little regional peculiarities of language. I was raised using the word "bluff" to describe a small stand of trees, while a "slough" is a small naturally occuring fetid body of water and a "dugout" is an manmade slough used to collect water for the cattle.

Hello,
My name is Debbie and I am from San Diego, California. I have been following C&Z since I read about it in the Los Angeles Times last year, and I decided to de-lurk as well.

I like to cook and bake both pastries and bread. My current culinary obsessions are French and Chinese, more particularly dim sum.

We have a wonderful wine growing region here in San Diego which produces some very good local wines. Thorton Winery, in particular, produces an excellent Cuvee Rouge Champagne which has the color of bright red berries. Delicious!

Big wave from up here in Woodland Hills (northwest end of LA county)! Delighted to have another breadmaker here!

Hi Rainey!
A big wave back from San Diego!
Wow another bread baker! I like to make all kinds of bread, but I really like to make the kind of bread that is referred to as artisinal breads. I start with a chef which then gets turned into the levain. I usually shape it into a boule and bake it in a La Cloche baker.
