Hello and welcome to cheftalk.
I'm also an enthusiastic amateur cook - and love baking, too. Our membership comes from around the world, I'm Scottish.
Please feel free to join in on any thread you find interesting, or start your own topic. The professional section of the board is read-only to us amateurs, but I enjoy reading it, as it gives an insight into aspects of the culinary industry that are not something I would usually learn about!
I hope you will make time to read some of the wonderful articles and view the photographs. Truly inspirational!
