Hello there, I'm wondering if there are any chefs around? I'm thinking of going to a cooking school soon and would like some advice/input/comments. I'm sick of being at home 24/7, I'm sick of cooking Bertolli, and it's damn hard to find a job in this economy. Especially when you haven't been working in over a decade. Back in 99-'02 I've attended college and earned two associates degrees. One was in Automotive, and the other in Graphic Design. I did very well, but nothing came of it. My ultimate dream job was to design concept cars, but I just don't have the talents for it. Plus, the school I wanted to go to in California is just way too freaking expensive. After Graphic Design, I wanted to do CAD work for my Dad. I tried learning CAD at our local tech-school and found that too hard for me as well. Plus, that was the same time my mom was going downhill with her breast cancer. When she died, I lost interest and haven't worked since 98. Anyway, I think I've got a nack for cooking and I think I might enjoy it. Any chefs on here that can make suggestions for a starter?
