Well, this is my first time here so I thought I should drop in and say hello.... I'm 26 years old, and was just accepted at the CIA.... I've been in the industry for over six years now, but havent really had the chance to work under anyone that could teach me much. So most of what I know I've gotten from reading countless cookbooks and the like. I've been in kitchens since..... well, since before I can remember. My father was the chef at my grandfathers restaurant many years ago. It was the place I was most happy to be in, even at 6 months old, and holds true to this day. I'm sure I'll have some questions here, and I may even be able to provide some answers of my own. Happy cooking!
