Welcome, Rodffc, to this community. Please don't miss the great articles at the main Chef Talk site, as well as the forums here in the Cafe.
Coming from a family where the chief nutriceutical was chicken soup with matzo balls, I understand your perspective, so far as an unschooled person can. We'll look forward to your contributions. Enjoy!
