Aloha, Welcome Laura to Chef Talk.
I love your avatar, it looks just like the Christmas display in front of Honolulu Hale in Hawaii!
This is a great Community, so many different culinary skill levels from all around the Globe.
Feel free to join the conversation or start one in the relevant thread.
One note on that though, folks who are not employed in the food industries are asked to read only in the 3 Pro-forums.
Don’t pass over the Articles, Reviews and Gallery; there are some fantastic photos of folks work and fun stuff too. Try the Search bar at the top of the page when looking for an interest; a lot of topics have gone around the block a few times already. Also, if you have questions in regards to Chef Talk’s website once you’ve read the Tutorials, FAQ and Community Guidelines, post those in the Feedback & Suggestion forum for assistance.
Cheftalk.com is on Face Book as well as Pinterest too. I hope that you will visit and throw your cents in where you feel comfortable, we’re a friendly bunch.
