Not that I want to take anyone away from ChefTalk (the best in the world!), but people might like to know that StarChefs now has discussion forums: StarChefs forums (fora??) It looks as though they want to be like CT to some extent, but still haven't found their own voice and specialties. They've only just started -- I assume these forums replace the awful old stuff they used to have -- and have very few members as yet (I was #22 just now). But you might be interested, since the site in general has lots of good information about "hot" chefs and recipes, and also has links to other good sites.
