I'm a law student from India and I want to become a pastry chef after I graduate. The rest is how I get from the rule of law to correct flavours.
I hope the ChefTalk community will help me on the way :)
Hello AMouthful and welcome to Chef Talk.
Many of us here are not professional chefs (I am a home cook myself), and some are career-changers like yourself. You are in good company.
We hope you will take time to visit the FAQ page for the site and read the Community Guidelines http://www.cheftalk.com/a/faq to which we must all adhere. You'll note that we non-professionals are free to read all forums, but must not post in the professional forums. Those are reserved for those who are working professionally in culinary positions. We have all the general forums in which to post; everyone posts there, and so your questions will be answered there.
But we are more than simply a discussion board! Don't miss the excellent culinary articles, photo galleries (oh, the pastries!), reviews of cookbooks and equipment and more. We also have a Facebook page and are on Pinterest as well. One of the primary virtues of this community is that everyone is considered to have something of value to contribute, no matter how experienced, no matter what age, etc. Our members come from all over the world as well. There is no place like Chef Talk; of that we are proud. We hope you will add your uniqueness to the mix here, thereby enriching it.
Best of luck with your legal and culinary endeavors! We look forward to seeing you here as often as your studies allow.
