Greetings to ChefTalk! I have always had a passion and knack for cooking, particularly cooking Asian food. Though I've worked as a line cook before, the vast majority of my cooking goes on at home. These past years I have really taken that passion to the next level, pushing myself to devise new recipes at home; as well as exploring great new restaurants. I am particularly obsessed with sushi, and my dream is to become a sushi chef. I aspire to gain a traditional sushi chef apprenticeship, and to travel to Japan and explore its fare first-hand (that is, after I pay off student debt and earn my stripes as a sushi chef). For now, I will be quiet and learn from the regulars and editors here. But this is a marvelous site, and I hope to learn a good deal from it.
