Hi I am a beginner cook. I have been cooking "out of a box" for 20 some years and trying to learn on my own how to cook using different spices and ingredients. I am in no way a good cook. My food has been edible but not great. I want to improve that. I am not looking to become professional just better.

I look forward to reading some of the posts on this forum. Hopefully it will help me improve. 

Thank you

Welcome to Chef Talk.

I’m sure that you’ve already found that the membership here is from all around the world, with skill levels varying from Professionals to Home Cooks and everything in between.

Feel free to join in the conversation or start your own relevant thread.  

You might want to utilize the Search bar at the top of the page, as many topics have been discussed previously.  The Articles, Reviews and Galleries are of note as well.  Should you have questions that are not addressed in the FAQ, Tutorials or Community Guidelines, please feel free to post those in the Feedback & Suggestion forum.  

A note about forums, the Pro section, folks not employed in the food industries are asked to read only there, but it is very interesting to peek in on what they're talking about.

I feel that the over 50,000 members here at CT are so very generous with their knowledge and always willing to help anyone, no matter your abilities.  Visit as often as you can and check out on Face Book and Pinterest as well.
