    Cook At Home
    My name is Derek and I have had a passion for cooking for several years but just recently taking a more serious interest in the culinary world.   I have been reading several books on technique...such as Knife skills( henckels) and Jacques Pepin's book of techniques. I am a hairstylist by trade( 20 years) and have looked in taking culinary courses ...due to my love of cooking.

    My best friend and I cook frequently and use presentation and take pictures to post on FB.  My friends tell me i should change careers...lol   

      I had been using Chicago and Calphalon cutlery but since ive gotten more serious about cooking i have recently purchased a few Wusthof Classic Ikon pieces. 10" chef.. Paring and filet knives.   I love the way they feel and their performance.  all my cookware is "All-Clad" 

    I will be posting from time to time with advice and questions.

    Have a great day in the kitchen

    I Just Like Food
    Welcome to Chef Talk Derek.

    Those are super looking photos you posted in the gallery. 

    That sure would be a big change from hair to food.  I bet you have a great sense of artistic style in both.  You seem to on your way.

    I think that you'll find that we are a diverse group of people from all around the world. 

    As a home cook myself, I can say that I have learned so much at Chef Talk.

    Do feel free to check out the reviews, articles and forums, though it is read only for us folk who are not in the biz for the Professional service threads.

    Have fun!

    We all look forward to seeing more of your creations.
