Hey I'm new to the board and just wanted to say hello. My name is Chris and I'm currently a sous chef at a casino resort here in WNY. The food culture here in the Buffalo area is in the middle of a turbulant and exciting time. There are cutting edge new places popping up all over that compliment the rich food traditions of the diverse ethnic communities of the rust belt. Im excited to be progressing in my career and look forward to learning some things about the trade from other enthusiasts here on the board.
