Get a part time job at a bakery, coffee shop or hotel; it will be entry  level and you will likely be doing dishes more than anything else, but you will get to see what it is like inside a commercial kitchen.  You can learn on the job (it will take years, but at least you are getting paid while you are learning).  Get books from the library and read; cook things at home if you can just for the experience of making whatever you are most interested in.  Look at online videos, read different blogs (joepastry.com is a good one, he has thorough explanations and step by step pictures) and see where it takes you.  School.is very expensive and food service does not pay well; you don't want to end up with a big school debt and a low paying job.....
