New member, "Hi"!

Hello all,

 

I just found the ChefTalk website today. I love finding another active forum with restaurant owners, chefs and other culinary professionals. I myself am a food service consultant and owner of a home chef service that operates in the Kansas City and Wichita metros in Kansas and Missouri. I got into consultant by request from past coworkers who moved up in their careers and saw a need for one special skill or another that I have. The chef service was something I started 5 years ago as a part time job to supplement my consulting career, but quickly grew to my main focus. I participate in a couple other active restaurant owner forums on other sites, but I'm not sure if it is kosher to mention them here. I also author my own blog which is republished several other places around the web. Occasionally, I get asked to do an interview in an industry magazine or website article, and I've had mentions in two published books on the restaurant industry.

 

I look forward to offering some honest help without trying to sell myself. I get just as annoyed at vendors pushing their goods on forums as everyone else does. I also look forward to learning everything I can from all the operators and chefs here!

Hi Brandon,

I know of which site you speak of. It was way too slow for me, I have not been on there for over a year.

Glad to see you pop up over here, this is a fairly active site with members from all over the globe.

Happy surfing!

Welcome Aboard Brandon,

 

I believe you shall find common ground here at Cheftalk, and blend a few new ingredients too.
