Nice to meet you, Cheffrey! Thanks for the introduction. We have a good contingent of Canadians here, as well as from all over the world, so you'll find a wonderful and lively mix of people here to interact with. If you want to pick up some ideas, you can tap members from just about anywhere- any continent. (We've even had members from Antarctica over the years!)
Be sure not to miss the other great features here beyond the forums: cooking articles, product reviews, photo galleries, job board, etc. We have a decent search tool to help you navigate the content so you can dig through the 12+ years' worth of goodies here.
Make yourself comfortable and enjoy it all. We'll look forward to seeing you here often.
