I am a home cook that's been told many times to go into business of my own. I would day that cooking is my passion. I love cooking different cuisines. I cooked for my sister's 25th wedding anniversary party with about 75 guests and everyone loved the food. I would like to really learn the proper techniques to anything and everything that a culinary student might learn in a typical culinary school but I cannot afford to go to ANY culinary school. Having said that, I would still want to learn and I thought that by reading all about it, reading the same books that a culinary student would read and learn from in school would be a start. I am interested in starting a catering business so I really want to learn the right way without investing a lot of money and time that I don't have. If I can do it with text books and any free internet-based cooking classes that I can find I would be greatful!!
