I have a clue how to bake as I have been around home baking my entire life and have done it myself for friends and family frequently, but I do not know how I stack up in a professional kitchen.  I have baked before professionally, but not massive scale, not anything fancy.  I have cooked fancier things for myself, my friends, and my family.  Basically I know how to cook the things I described in the recipe links.   I do not know if I could cook them efficiently enough to...

I am not a professional chef, but a friend of mine and I would like to start a food truck with some deserts.  The question is, how long would they keep and what is the best way to keep them?  Assume  I know nothing about professional cooking please.  Here are the...
didnt mean to come off as pretentious. in my younger days i didnt read as much and i regret it, so now i read more. and i had no clue about anthropology, marx, or theory. its a life goal of mine, literature and carl jung especially. i want to "be a jungian."
thank you will pm you but just to gather info, i have to work first, finish school etc. i do want to live there one day.  I am good friends with a chinese trini who lives in ft lauderdale and commutes in miami, we talk about the caribbean all the time.  His cousin lives in curacao, used to own a brothel, now owns a restaraunt. speaks two or three dialects of chinese, spanish, dutch and papamiento as well as english.  I would really like to learn creole.  I am not sure what...
