Hello from Ohio
Aloha, welcome to Chef Talk. You've come to the right place!
You know, nobody else gets me... You do what? You cook, you mean food?
It's like speaking a different language to some people. Let me just say, the folks here at Chef Talk, they GET you!
Take a look around and if you have any questions, post those in the Feedback & Suggestion forum. A note about the forums, the Pro section is for folks employed in the food industries only, so I'm hoping that you will join in the conversation in the Non-Pro forums too. Oh and don't miss the Culinary Students forums as well.
I hope you are a shutter bug, pictures of the dishes that the wonderful people here at CT create are so awesome, I'd love to see some of yours too.
Once again, welcome to Chef Talk @BaconBarrett
