I am also the founder and webmaster for the Independent Chefs Federation--a free online Association for people involved in any area of the culinary world. site is www.geocities.com/chefsfederation While mainly the head Line Chef at work, my creative outlet is in soup.\ Since 9/11 I've assembled over 25 "Soups of America" ranging from NY pizza soup to San Fransisco Chicken, Yankee Pot Roast, to All American Bacon Cheeseburger. I've enjoyed your posts in the Cafe' hope you will enjoy some of mine.
