Hello all, this is one of my first posts here... I actually posted in the welcome forum but was redirected here. My situation is this... I am considering changing professions and I would like to begin a career in culinary arts. My problem is this... I don't know where to begin. I don't know if I should attempt to enter the culinary arts program at the local community college or if they will want experience before they accept me. I have some experience in the kitchen. I spent a year as an intern in a kitchen at the college I attended but that was really nothing more than making sure that the food was brought out and that everything was hot. It was not learning how to cook. I also cook at home for my new bride, I can follow a recipe and I can cook OK but I want to learn how to cook better. Any of your advice would be greatly appreciated, as I really respect your many years of experience. Thank you so much.
