Forced to leave Tennis career should I go to culinary school?
Hi, have just enrolled in culinary school, no idea whether it's the right thing but will let you know! My reasoning was that i want to spend the rest of my life doing something creative that i enjoy. it sounds as if you have a lot of cooking experience, do you need to go to culinary school? i am going to learn the skills faster than i can at home.
Not knocking the biz, been doing it twelve years now, but the only people that went to culinary school when I did and stayed in the business were the ones that had prior experience.
I will second the suggestion that you need a job first, culinary school later if at all. Get a job in the best restaurant you can to observe and be a part of what working in a kitchen is like before spending any money on school. Do it for at least a year. In that year you can find out how strong your interest really is and may have more insight into which direction you want to go.
