Welcome to Cheftalk,
Our membership is gathered from around the world (i'm Scots, for instance) and all levels of culinary ability from those starting out to master chefs and all levels in between. All are welcome:D
Feel free to join any thread you find of interest or start your own in the relevant forum. The three Professional fora are read only for those of us not working in a culinary trade. The wikis, blogs, reviews, articles and photographs on the site are all worth spending time to view.
Hope you'll join in!
