Welcome to DC, Stephen. You have come to a good place. But I have to warn you - it is addictive. I know that we will all look forward to hearing from you and your experiences at the culinary institute. There are many professionally trained chefs here, as well as home cooks like me. Stick around!
Hello welcome to the forum, I'm also new here, but I'm new to cooking. I've joined this forum just with the idea to help others who are jsut getting started in this field. And also I want to get some expert advice which seem to be in plenty here on this forum.
