Ive been working in culinary for 12 years of which 4 years as cook,4 as chef de cuisine,1 as executive chef and the last 3 as yacht/private chef.
I attended the art institutes culinary program in pursuit of a BA in culinary management. I completed one year and a semester because class schedules changed and I couldn't run my kitchen while attending school anymore. The "course scheduling lady" asked me word for word "do you want to go to school or work". Naturally I said to f**k off. This was 6 years ago.
I never really needed the paper, but I feel it would really help now that I am working in the private sector.
I work on yachts and for private families now and everything is great, but as a personal accomplishment I want to get my degree.
Here's my dilemma, I don't have the time to commit to class schedules and I travel constantly. When I say constantly I mean all the f**king time. So I thought about doing it online at escoffier international online culinary school. On the website it said it is accredited by ACF?
ANYA recommendations or input would be awesome!
