Hello Andopolos! Welcome to the community. How did you stumble upon us? We're always curious to know.
An experienced professional like yourself will find plenty here to learn and enjoy: discussion forums, cooking articles, cookbook and equipment reviews, photo galleries and more. The search tool will be essential for helping you wade through it all, as we have more than 14 years worth of information on the site. I think your other half will want to come here as well; we have a very strong contingent of pastry people here from all over the world, some of whom are owner-operators (Panini for one). A few are so busy they don't stop in much (Momoreg) or have changed careers to being culinary instructors (MBrown). I mention those three because like me, they are long-time members of Chef Talk and I know their work.
We hope you enjoy being part of this excellent community of professionals and food lovers from all over the world. Please visit often to read, share and learn. Good luck to you in your enterprise.
