However, the head chef where I work thinks I should go to school, and another woman I know who was a chef told me the same thing, because of the job opportunities both felt they had lost by not having a degree from a culinary school. Another caterer I know also encouraged me to attend a culinary school. BUT...I realize that school costs a lot of money, and cooks don't make that much money. I also realize that experience is more important than a culinary degree.
I'm very, very confused and just wondering if I could get everybody's thoughts on this?
