Welcome, Alebelanger! Bienvenue--- For many of our members English is not the first language. We understand that and appreciate the effort of taking part here en Anglais. I would have a serious problem if I wanted to participate in a cooking community in French, as rusty as it is for me.
You will find a warm welcome here and I hope you enjoy taking part. Be sure to read the cooking articles, equipment reviews, etc. There is a great deal here besides the discussion forums, as wonderful as they are.
Good luck in your enterprise. We look forward to seeing you here often.
