Aloha, Welcome Alena to Chef Talk.
This is a fantastic, vibrant, eclectic community comprised of everything, INCLUDING the kitchen sink!
Isn’t that just the way, food has such a powerful pull over all us? I hope that you will share also other food experiences, so many members here from all around the globe, it's great to hear about them.
Check the place out and if you have a question in regards to the site self, you can post those in the Feedback & Suggestion forum. I might suggest the search bar at the top of the page since CT had been around for almost 15 years, many a topic has gone around the moon a few times, you may want to watch the posting dates, some members have not been around for some time and you may ask a question of them, but...
Please note that the Professional Food Service forums are for chefs only to post in, though many a Home Cook brings just as much to the table as in any Five Star restaurant, we are asked to read only.
Like Cheftalk.com on Face Book, Pinterest and Twitter too! You can find other like minded folk there as well.
