post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, my name is Enrique and I am from Mexico.  I have been cooking for quite some time, cooking and sports are my passion.  I do not have a degree, but I have had my own business before.  I hope I can contribute and if I can be of any help, I will be glad.

 

Happy to be here!

Hola, Enrique! Welcome to Chef Talk. We hope you'll enjoy the community and the site, too. Don't miss the cooking articles, wikis, photos and more, besides the discussion forums. We also have more than 10 years' worth of discussions you can find with the "search" tool.

 

I can't quite tell from your introduction if you have worked professionally as a chef. If you have, you are welcome to post in the Professionals' forums. If you're a home cook (as I am), we can read in the Professionals' forums, but we mustn't post there. All the general forums are open to us for posting and reading.

 

How did you get interested in cooking? Do you have someone in your past who inspired you?

 

I hope we see you here often to read, explore and share.

Welcome!

Thanks for the welcome!  Yes, I have been reading the forum and articles for about a month now and I really like the site.

 

I would not consider myself as a professional chef, I have worked on the food industry for awhile and I had my own small restaurant before, I was the main cook or chef and I had several cooks to help me; but I have never been an executive chef or something like that and I do not have professional training.  I have done some professional catering, serving on very important events, but that is it.  So no, I am not going to post on the professional chefs, I am just going to learn from the big ones :)

 

I have cooked for myself back since I was in college, and now I cook for my family and in about a month I will open a restaurant.  My first job on the food industry was at Domino's Pizza, and then I had others mostly italian food.  I can say gratefully that my pizza and pastas are the best in town (according to people's poll and demand) and a couple of years ago I started doing cakes for my daughter and everyone just loved them so something clicked inside of my head and I started to do some more complex dishes with success and that's when I decided to start learning more and more and do this for a living.  I am planning to get a degree on gastronomy and being in Mexico I have a great advantage since Mexico is very rich in gastronomy, almost each state has its own gastronomy, too bad here where I live there are no culinary schools, but something will come up.

 

So hopefully I can contribute with my knowledge and also learn from others.

 

Thanks again.
