    Welcome, @meganwhisks  ! It sounds as if you are off to a good start in your culinary career. Chef Talk is a good place to explore ideas because our members are from all over the world, all ages. And, you can also learn from the home cooks. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif  

    The forums are a wonderful place to start reading, and the search tool can help you focus your reading. Please keep in mind the professional forums are for those who are currently working in professional positions, but everyone is welcome to read and learn from those forums. The general forums are for all to post in, and everyone reads and posts there.

    Don't miss the cooking articles, and you'll also want to take a look at the Cooking Challenges in the Food and Cooking general forum. These change monthly (this month's is flour).  They're fascinating, and a great way to discover ways to use ingredients and cooking methods, as our members post their dishes for all to see and discuss. I think you'll like that. 

    We hope you'll enjoy being part of the community, and that you come here often to learn and share. Good luck in your studies and in your future endeavors.

    Warm regards,

    Mezzaluna

    Hey, Hey! Halifax population just doubled! Nice to have you on board. French Fix is a good spot, one of the few places I buy sweets from.
