Hey guys! I'm Nick, and new to this forum so I thought I'd start off with some background. Im a 16 year old from a small NJ town looking to go into the world of cooking, and food's been my passion since 2nd grade, and I got accepted into the Ocean County Vo-Tech School, where I'll be attending this September! But enough about me... I have looked at some great schools such as Johnson and Wales, the CIA, the Academy of Culinary Arts at Atlantic-Cape Community College, Le Cordon Bleu, and The Art Institute. Now I know this is a business of one's own choices/decisions, but I just wanted some cooks/chefs opinions on those schools, and some others that I might look into. One more thing! Unfortunately, I dont have a job yet which is a big part of restaraunt experience, so if anyone in the Ocean County area knows any places that are hiring or looking for a busboy/dishwasher, I'm your boy! Thanks everyone who reads this, please share youre culinary wisdom!
