Not a new member. Actually have been hanging around these parts for a while, and have always, always loved this place. Unfortunately I have been on about a 2.5 year hiatus from here. Well, at least from posting. I'd stop in occasionally and read, but that was about it. Don't really have an excuse besides life happened, and came at me from a lot of angles over the past few years. a job change happened, a divorce happened, and a sick family member happened. Ita been crazy, and up and down, but everything that has happened I believe has made me a better, stronger me. I'm focused and am living life for the first time in a while. The nyc restaurant scene beat me up. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. I had a hell of a time and worked for some incredible chefs. But it was time for me to get out. So I'm out of NYC now. Am currently in CT, and plan to be much more active on cheftalk again. I have truly loved it here for a long time. Glad to be back.
