Hi Margie! Welcome to Chef Talk. I think you'll view this community as your go-to resource. We have 10 years' worth of information here, and professionals you can learn from. We hope you'll browse the sub-forums; you can read and browse in the professionals' forums, but we home cooks mustn't post there as we can in the General Forums.
I'm one of those people who puts grocery stores on my "must-see" travel list. I've found lots of wonderful products, some of which led me to recipes which use those products. Plus, I just think it's fun! I learned from skilled home cooks (my mother and grandmother), and began making meals at age 10.
I hope you enjoy the content and add to it yourself. You can use the search tool to find earlier posts on topics of interest.
We hope you visit often to learn and share.
