From the mouths of chefs, or at least their typing fingers. Here are 582 transcripts of chats between real professional chefs and real home cooks. These occurred at ChefsLine, the Culinary Hotline, where anyone anywhere can chat online or make a phone call and instantly reach a professional chef, pick their brain, write a recipe, solve a problem, write a menu, calculate an ingredient substitution, and have a pro hold their hand through the most complicated cooking techniques.
Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is coming in two weeks, with Christmas and Hanukkah following up shortly after. Don't ask me how, it just is. And, I know, you can research your own cooking tips. Google will even spell it for you. But ChefsLine is a unique service, and cheap as hell, and free most of the time - for instance, they just posted the transcripts of nearly six hundred chats between their chefs and their clients on their blog.
