Hi, newbie here..
Hello and welcome to Cheftalk.
Our membership is spread around the globe and all levels of culinary ability, too - so if you have any questions, I'm sure someone will be able to give you an answer! The wikis, blogs, photographs and articles on the site are great - it's certainly worthwhile spending a little time looking at them, even if only for inspiration...!
The professional fora are read-only to those of us who are not in the culinary professions, but make interesting reading, too.
