I have been working as a chef for 4 years but am not enjoying cooking professionally. Thankfully, it hasn't dented my passion for cooking at home in my own warm yet tiny kitchen.
I am looking to share recipes and techniques as well as hopefully make a few new friends.
Hope to hear from you.
Way to go! So many people here, I believe, are "trained" chefs and professional cooks. I feel a little under qualified! I am just a Bama girl who grew up with a mom in the food indusrty...no mistake, she "trained" me well!... I became a cook like most people I know...I got married and had children! I am a Registered Nurse by education, but decided to change my "profession" to cooking several years ago!
This forum (which is my first also) really is wonderful! Welcome!

Welcome to DC. If you stay away from the pie cult, and watch that the purple mother ship doesn't abduct you, you probably will find that DCers are gentle with newbies!

I know there are professional chefs and cooks here, but I think the majority is that most of us are cooks by default, chef wannabes thanks to Food Network or CreateTV!
