If anyone could help me out with some ideas on how to fix fresh trout for a home cooked meal I would really appreciate it, it can be baked, fried or anything in between.   Any ideas or thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Very nice article ... interesting how they only targeted Le Cordon Bleu affiliated schools though due to the fact that the other culinary colleges out there are charging the same rates that those colleges are and lets face it recruiters from my experience are about the same the world over ... their bonus depends on how many people they can get to sign on the dotted line, any college that charges those types of prices and tells someone that they will be a chef or will be...
