Cheftalk looks nicely set up and appears to be traveled by many the online wanderer ;). Are there more cooking forums that are traveled as well? Please let me know, I kind of want to dive in.
Also, are there some good sites for beginners such as myself? I really know very little about cooking and I'm guessing the best way to learn is through experience (i imagine it can get pricey).
Please let me know any information you're willing to give as far as getting into cooking as a hobby.
