    What's everyone, my name is "The Butcher" and I'm new to the forum. I can see that there are a lot of awesome topics being discussed in the culinary world. I hope to be an active member and get to know some of you all.

    I am part of Pyknic, a food-themed clothing brand that I started with my friend/college soccer teammate. From t-shirts featuring cuisines from the world over to denim jeans with a crossing fork and knife over the pockets, the colorful concepts helped us become awarded #2 on Bloomberg Businessweek's America's Best Young Entrepreneurs list. 

    I found Cheftalk.com through Chef Jim Berman, a moderator here. He had us go down to Delcastle Vocational High School to speak to his classes not only about our business but also motivation and habits for success. Cooking really is an art so a lot of the students also found a connection with that aspect. "The Chef" and I got in the kitchen as well and participated in an "Iron Chef" competition with the students.

    Welcome to ChefTalk! I am glad you made your way here!!! I think there are a lot of people here that can share their thoughts about the greet stuff at Pyknic.

    Rest assured, crew, The Butcher isn't here to spam. Rather, he and his partner, The Chef, are the guys behind Pyknic (BusinessWeek Magazine's 2010 #2 Young entrepenuers of the Year) are here to get ideas for their product line. They have been great supporters of my young culinary students and have
    some great wearables that give you the opportunity to show your Cooking Pride!

    Cook At Home
    Welcome to Chef Talk, Butcher! Anyone who's a friend of Jim's and a supporter of students is a friend of mine, too. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/thumb.gif

    For cooking and baking, I usually wear whatever I have that's cotton (cool) and that I don't wear out of the house, topped by an old, very stained Zabar apron from the last century. If company's coming, I put on my Williams Sonoma hemp apron with my name embroidered on it. Being able to wear things like this is one of the blessings of being a home cook. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    Enjoy the site! I hope we'll see you often.
