    what's up my friends? just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. my name is sean and im 27. been cooking professionally on the line for almost 10 years. i was looking for a place to listen to, and share, thoughts on this crazy, addictive, frustrating, and rewarding career we all seem to be psychotic enough to commit to. most of my friends have no idea what my job involves and i have trouble conveying the absolute insanity of a busy service to them, but i know you all will have plenty of advice and experience and I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone!

    Hello, Sean and welcome to Cheftalk.

    Our membership is wide - both in terms of geography and culinary expertise - from those just learning to boil water through to masterchefs, and all levels in between.  I fall into the 'very enthusiastic amateur' group!

    Feel free to join in on any thread you find interesting or start your own in the relevant forum.  There are also three Professionals-only fora which you may find of assistance in order to 'vent', for instance!  The wikis, blogs, articles, reviews and photgraphs are all well worth spending time to view.

    Hope to see you around the boards.

    As far as Tony Bourdain  The guy has been through the gamit and knows the business , but  his attitude of 

    ''My way is the only way ''' is wrong.
