Hello and welcome to Cheftalk!
We have members from around the globe, including a few from Australia - one of my favourite countries - I was a visitor earlier this year, and spent time in NSW, ACT and Melbourne.
The members are from all branches of the culinary professions and beyond - for instance, I'm a very enthusiastic amateur, but we have masterchefs on here, too,
There is a section for culinary students which you might find of interest - but feel free to post in any of the threads you find interesting on the site or even start your own. The huge range of articles and amazing photography on the site are also worth a look!
