Hello From South Louisiana!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've been viewing this site daily the past few weeks and finally decided to join. I am looking to grow as a cook and make some delicious meals. 


I'm a 25 year old male from south louisiana. I am not a cook by trade, I just love to cook. I grew up around many great cooks of traditional south louisiana cuisine. I have a pretty good handle on cooking these traditional Louisiana dishes, but I want to expand on my techniques to create new exciting (for me) dishes. 


Though I have been deglazing jambalaya pots for years, I just learned that this was a "real" cooking technique. I just got my first stainless steel skillet and have been experimenting with pan sauces. I'm having fun but not always success. 


I'm looking forward to learning from the community and cooking some delicious meals. I'm not afraid to experiment and am always willing to go outside my comfort zone. I keep a frozen pizza and ramen on hand in case things go awry.

Aloha, Welcome to Chef Talk.

Yup, I’d say that we are pretty friendly bunch.  It amazes me how generous the members are with their knowledge of all things food. 

I was doing to same as you almost three years ago, searching the `net for an answer to a cooking dilemma, and here I am. 

I would have to say though I am a died-in-the-wool-foodie from way back before there was such a word, HA!

Take a lookey-loo around; do keep in mind thought at the Pro forums are read only for us folk who are not employed in the food industries.

Should you have questions in regards to the site itself, you can post those in the Feedback & Suggestion forum.

I hope to see you often, here, as well as at Face Book and Pinterest, that’s right CT has a page and a following on both.

If you're looking to tackle a new cuisine, this is the place.  With over 50,000 members from around the globe... just give a shout out and it'll get loads of responses.

Once again, welcome.
