    Hello,

    Does any one know how to get in contact with food experts/chefs, who can help me create a menu for a start up business?

    I have looked all over the internet to no avail.

    Would be very grateful if someone on this delightful forum could help

    Thanks

    THIS KID WILL NEVER LEARN UNLESS HE DOES RESEARCH HIMSELF. Here on chef talk over the years we got this type of question a lot and found its students that were lazy and wanted us to do the assignments that they were given. We know how they do not therefore have to learn the way we did.

    You said it cheflayne, there are way too many avenues open to learn.

    @ chefed, He knows what sources to go to , just a question of doing it. BTW there is much on the internet if he can't get out for one reason or another.

    Petals.

    Lol at some of the comments on here.

    I guess non of you ever watched bambi as kids. If you did, maybe you would of learnt the general polite rule of "if you have nothing good to say, then dont say anything at all".

    I can only assume that some people commenting on here *eh hem, chefedb, are disgruntled, middle aged men/women who have nothing better to do with their time than give their two pennies worth wheres its not wanted nor needed.

    For the record I am not some Student looking for answers to homework. Im a 23 yr old, Coming from the IT world, looking to start a food business and need some help.

    The title was meerely in jest to try and get the most responses ( notice the "toodles" ending on the post )

    This is 2012 my friends. The internet is a great tool where the global community can help eachother out.

    oh, an btw, @ petalsandcoco, seckkle yourself

    I would add that the way you asked was quite rude.  In general you start with an introduction.  Explain who you are and why you need help.  Include some details such as size and length of project, budget, etc.

    quite rude?

    I asked a question on a public forum.

    To not contradict my last post, I will just say, Thanks for your input

    Petals, darling, this was meant to be 'homework'. All I wanted was a bit of advice.

    If you didnt have anything positive to say, then why take the time out of your exciting life to post a reply?

    I would hate to be one of your children.

    Jeff Spooner. Remember the name

    Jeff,

    Forgive me if I came across as offensive. Can we start all over ? This is a public forum and if I have offended you then I will be the first to apologize.

    You posted but gave very little info, can you please be more specific as to what you are looking ?

    It is up to you if you wish to reply.

    I am at work right now but will log on/off when I get the time. If there is anything I can do for you then I will post, gladly.

    Cheftalk is not about tearing people apart. There are also chefs you have addressed in your post that have so much knowledge it would make your head spin.

    Use some honey....it works a bit better.

    Petals.

    Its ok luv, no need to aplogise.

    I've found food consultants online who can do the job

    It was silly of me to ask a leading question on a free public forum. I shall now go and give my self ten lashes for my incompetence.

    and they say the young are the ones ruining the world...

    I'm fairly young and in IT as well. It's great that you are branching into a new area, and I think in terms of finding a place to get input you picked a great site.

    That being said. Your very first post here is the typical "PLEASE HELP" plea that so many inexperienced individuals throw up on forums all over the place to try to get attention and solve their problem with the least amount of effort put forth. Those posts are viewed as being from individuals that hold no regard for the community at large and it is evident that when you "looked all over the internet to no avail" that you put the same effort into your search as you did your first post here.

    I'm glad you returned if only to make snarky replies to what was an appropriate response to your first volley. Arrogance.. and seemingly incompetent.. you should go far in the food world.
