Yes, there are some members who are professional chefs, but the majority of us are just havin' a good time in the kitchen.

if this is true, it is exactly the reason why i argued against the use of these titles when the subject came up, a long time ago.

it ain't the first time misconceptions have been made because of our titles. i've been asked questions before by people expecting a seriously professional answer, thinking i was professionally trained. i usually just try to 'splain the situation.

however, for one member, i'm still searching for uses of saffron in asian foods, especially japanese cooking for someone. (i've only turned up info on it's use a dye.)

anyway, i'm now waiting to see what our holiday logo will look like this year...

edited to add: anyone who mentioned another site should be shot as a traitor!!!

2nd edit: uncle bob, your style and response once again graces us all.
