    I joined you a few weeks ago, but have been swamped with work - which is a blessing in this economy!  I am now playing catch-up.  Let me introduce myself:

    I am the Executive Research Chef for product development for Walnut Ridge Farm Foods LLC (Aug 2005 to present) in Cassopolis, Michigan

    I find new ways to create food products from the resources of Walnut Ridge Farm, a sustainable, natural, organic and totally exciting place to live and work. 

    I am a member of the American Culinary Federation, Grand Rapids Chapter, The Research Chefs Association, National Restaurant Association, Michigan Restaurant Association, Slow Food, Personal & Private Chef Association.

    I've been cooking and baking since I was 10, cooking Cantonese since I was 15, and Middle Eastern, Italian, and dishes of the Indian sub-continent since I was in my twenties.  That was a long time ago.  I also farm, hunt and fish and forage. I am happily ensconced in a 500 square mile county with 50,000 human inhabitants.  Life is very good to me. I hope to make a few friends here and look forward to sharing and learning.  I believe that cooking well is its own reward.

    Aloha, Welcome ChefAmos! 

    So glad that you had some time to sit down for a minute, well, also to introduce yourself.  I have seen you around the boards for a bit and it’s so nice to get some background to the name. 

    You sound beyond busy to me, so I hope that you got a chance to look over everything.  Should you have any questions, please PM one of the Mods or Admin people in regards to the site.  I think you’ve already gotten a good handle on what’s what around here at Chef Talk.

    Once again Chef, Aloha, Welcome
