My name is Joachim but my friends call me Joe. It's alot easier. I look forward to learning new techniques and recipies that I can share with my family. I hope to be able to contribute to the forums. This should be fun and educational.
I'm glad to be here
Welome to Cheftalk, Joe.
Our membership comes from around the globe and all levels of culinary ability; like you, I fall into the enthusiastic amateur camp!
Feel free to join in on any thread you find interesting, or start your own in the relevant forum. However, the Professional fora are read-only for those of us not presently working in a culinary discipline (but they still make interesting reading!).
I hope to see you around the boards.
