I just realized this section was here, originally I posted about health conscious oyster chowder and had a great turn out, but just wanted to say hello one more time here. Like I said in the title, I’m from South Carolina but currently Beijing teaching English. In the states I was a line cook at night for a hotel restaurant, I did fairly well for myself but since management changed and the chef i admired left I quit as well. I hope when I return to the US to find a new job in the kitchen. I need to start cooking like the locals, there's no cheese anywhere!
