Long time lurker, first time poster. I am a line cook at a chain restaurant in Northern Ontario (we don't really have anything more than chains around here, unfortunately). I was homeless for the formative years of my adult life, going kitchen to kitchen as a temp dishwasher. And have only just recently settled in a small city to be near my children and managed to secure a line cook job that I've held for nearly six months. I'm kind of older to actually start finding my roots in cooking (though cooking in a chain restaurant, let's be honest, is a rather loose wording), but I figure better late than never. I'm going to pose a lot of questions to you guys and learn as I go. Pleasure to meet you. Name's Brandon.
