New user in California; home chef, long time "foodie" (before the term became a pejorative).
Aloha, welcome tommy, you've come to the right place!
I'm with you, nobody else gets me... You do what? You cook food? It's like speaking a different language. Let me just say, the folks here at Chef Talk, they GET you!
Take a look around and if you have any questions, post 'em up in the Feedback & Suggestion forum. A note, the Pro section is for folks employed in the food industries, you and I are asked to read only there.
I hope you are a shutter bug, pictures of the dishes that the wonderful people here at CT make are so awesome, I'd love to see some of yours too.
Once again tommy, welcome to Chef Talk.
