Hello and welcome to Cheftalk.
What an exciting time for you - a new career beckons! I took a short course at LCB in Paris many years ago. In those days, it was one of the ways that we Europeans filled part of our 'gap' year between school and University! Things I was taught there have stayed with me all my life. I am not a professional, merely an enthusiastic amateur.
Have a look at the photographs and articles on here - I am sure they will inspire you. The culinary student fora should also be of interest - and I hope you will join in on threads that are of interest or even start your own.
Good luck with your new career!
