Hello Community, I've posted a succinct biography of where I am currently in my professional development and am excited to have found this resource. I have wasted countless hours on Facebook and can't wait to get "up-to-speed" here on ChefTalk. I just read an article called "Passion of a Chef" and I feel that it is something I must develop. I caution this sentiment by saying I would much rather develop a love for cooking than jump headfirst into something I feel mediocre about. I would like to enjoy a descent pay and am desirous of working toward that. Working the line, as described in the article, is enthralling and fills me with anxiety. It provokes a sense of what I must look forward to. I am currently reading Vileisis' Kitchen Literacy. I can't wait to participate in forums, learn from the skilled and share what I am learning and know.
