I'm interested in this, because I like eating food a lot, and would love to learn how to actually prepare good meals.
Would that be enough to maybe enroll in culinary arts after I graduate just to learn? Or should I just settle for Food Network lessons?
I know it would probably be difficult, but it has peaked my interest for a little while.
That's all the experience I had going in. You will have a tough time and you will feel like an idiot when half of your class is well experienced and already kicks ass in a professional kitchen. There are lots of oppurtunites that come from a culinary degree not necessarily just kitchen work. I say give it a go.
Ahh yeah I wish I was where you are. I'm currently working and saving money for culinary school, and I'm in that weird place where I'm deciding between going and just working my way up and getting experience. Although I'm looking to go for pastry which I feel has some techniques for which culinary school would be invaluable.
How are you finding it so far?
You have heard of Canadore College's culinary arts program? It's fantastic, the chefs I work under are incredibly talented. Culinary school would be valuable for pastry, I have a lot of trouble with pastry still but I'm improving. I say go for it, it's an incredible program and if you already have industry experience, that will definetly helps you. I went in without any experience and am now doing fairly well. Go for it, if you have any more questions about it ask away on here.
