Well, for the past couple of years, my plan has been to go to culinary school after high school.. But now, being a senior in high school and looking at not only how expensive it is, but also reading that a lot of times, culinary school isn't exactly necessary, I'm reconsidering.
I wanted to ask you all here if it sounds reasonable to simply get a full time job waiting, or busing, and working my way up the ladder to eventually get into the kitchen as a career? Is that possible? Reasonable? Obviously, pay wouldn't be high, but I figured that that would give me hands on experience, and if I wanted to get a higher job in the culinary world, and/or even branch off into my own business, that would give me enough experience to do so.
So does that sound like an okay plan instead of culinary school?
