Hi, My name is Douglas and I am new to Chef Talk. I live in the Seattle, Washington area and live in a residential community where I cook for about 30 people on a regular basis. I also teach cooking at my local YMCA, mostly to children but occasionally to adults as well. I have a fair amount of experience but also aspire to go to culinary school and eventually have my own restaurant. I have already posted on one of the forums and look forward to posting others as well as reading other members' postings. I have a fairly wide variety of interests related to cooking and/or being a restaurateur and I look forward to utilizing Chef Talk in the future.
