Hello this is my first time in the forums, my name is Nelson. I am 17 years old and i started cooking about 6 months ago. My love for food has grew around me ever since i was little. My idols are Chef Gordon Ramsay, and Hubert Keller. Someday i wish to be a professional chef and work at top restaurants. hopefully i can learn a lot from here :)!
Hello Nelson, welcome to Cheftalk.

The articles, wikis, reviews and photography on the site are outstanding and well worth taking the time to examine.
