My Private Messages states that I can only send two a day... Is this something that is lifted with time or is this just to encourage posting on the public forums?
Messaging? (sorry I'm a noob)
Boy, it's been awhile since I was a newbie, but yes, I think that once you are an established member of Chef Talks community, that should change. And yes, this is a great community, with an enormous amount of collective information and resources. You may also want to utilize the search bar at the top of the page, as many topics of interest have been discussed previously over the more than 10 years of Chef Talks existence and over 45,000 members.
