Hey everybody, New to these forums, just wanted to say hi and share a little about myself and my background. I am originally from Oregon, where I started my kitchen career as a dishwasher. I realized that I loved the kitchen when I found myself actually looking forward to going to work! At that point my goal became to be a line cook, and after 9 months of busting my @$$ in the dish pit, I achieved that goal. Over the course of the last 7 years I have worked my way through every kitchen position, having the chance to work for some really great Chef's. I am currently working in Alaska, as the private Chef at a high end fishing lodge. I am looking forwad to discussions and dialogue with some of my peers, as well as home cooks and former Chef's. Thanks for reading guys, and see you around the boards!
