Is there such a person as cchiu? I really wonder what you are doing on a chef board if you are asking such questions. This is not a bad question, it is just that you have asked about 10 or so like it, which demonstrate no understanding of basics. Are you learning something?
I think cchiu is a person who is interested in food just like any other person or foodservice professional who ask questions on these boards. These boards are open not only to professionals, but also to people who enjoy learning about new foods and ingredients. You don't have to be a foodservice professional to ask or answer a question. That's what makes this community so great!

nutcakes: Yes, I am learning a lot, considering I've never gone to cooking school and am full time graphic designer by trade. I actually posted this question because I frequent other cooking forums from other web sites. If I can't find the answer for someone on my own, I tend to ask here because I know someone will probably answer me. Most of the time the questions are for myself however. This question was originally posted at the epicurious.com forum. Actually, I did another search and found more sources just now, so I must have been off my game earlier and wouldn't have asked this question in the first place.
Thank you. I don't know if you guessed or read about me in the link above. Either way, you are correct, and the fact that you do not have to be a chef to frequent this board is why I am here. I appreciate that there are so many chefs who are willing to help.
Thank you. Both for your comment and for the source!
