Hi all, long time reader, first time poster

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I've been perusing cheftalk for awhile now, but have never actually signed up to post anything. Actually have some time today! Lezsee, I started "cooking", I think, when I was about five, throwing all of my mom's spices into a pot of non-boiling water that I put on the stove. As a really young kid I would always get cookbooks from the library on different cuisines of the world. Skipped through various retail jobs through my teens, and tried my hand several times at finishing college, but I just don't know if it's worth it.

I'm 30 now, and have been cooking on the line for about three years now. First started years ago in FOH as a waitron unit, did some bartending also. Then I was tired of living and dying by some rube's ability to tip, and was tired of being "just a waiter". So I went BOH and I love it.

Currently, I work at an _extremely_ popular and well-loved fine/casual-dining restaurant in Chicago (sorry, cant say which). De-facto the most professional kitchen I have ever worked in, and I'm learning a lot!

Anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself, and I hope I can make some good contributions to this board!

Cheers

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 about two 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.

Once again, welcome.
