apprenticeship or associates

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So Ihave three years cooking experience but i have run into a rut after a year of culinary school. I feel as though the course is laking the culinary knoledge i seek and more focused on managment i learn little to nothing on ingridents we use. I want to woth draw and enroll into a ACF certified apprentice program but i am unsure on what is a better option for my love in this bussiness to grow so i may be a chef. I just want to know proffesionals opinions. Whats better an apprentice program or a culinary degree? Either way i am not going back but i am open to other schools.

Culinary school is meant to be the foundation of a lifetime of culinary studies. But, at the same time, it should also be pushing you to be a better student and eventual manager. In your post your spelling was rough, your grammar was incorrect, and it was all just a little messy.

 

The great part about culinary school is that you get to fine tune those "book-learning" skills so that when you become a great chef you have the education to back up your talent. 

 

An apprenticeship is an amazing was to learn a tremendous amount of culinary information at once. So if you are only interested in culinary technique, go for an apprenticeship.

 

Good luck!

My grammar in my post was largely due to me using my phone to type. But i assure you typically i have good grammar. I understand what your saying though. Since the program i am interested in is 16 credits shy of a associates i do plan to take some gen ed courses as well as managment so i may have two certifications.
