Vocational School for Culinary Arts?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

The ONLY place within a reasonable driving distance to me that offers any type of Culinary courses is a local vocational school.

 

Here is the link to the culinary page:

They do have two locations. North and Central. Central is closest (10 minutes drive, even with traffic) and the other is about a 30-40 minute drive to Cape Coral.

 

Opinions please!

 

The only other school close to me is a couple of hours drive up the interstate. At the prices of gas, it is just not do-able.

Nothing wrong with Voc. Schools specializing in Culinary. I graduated one in NY in 1957 and don't regret it.

Take a look at the assortment of restaurants around either location. Pick the one with a better selection, or the places you could get work while being a student. Working close to school is a nice thing.
