I'd like to take a second to say hello to everyone. I've been lurking for a bit and this seems to be a really neat place with a lot of knowledgable people. I'm in the midst of a career change as it seems a number of people are right now. The IT industry has lost its luster for me, besides, who really wants to spend 10 hours a basking in the glow of their monitor anyway. Not Me! So I've decided that now is the perfect time to go to Culinary School. I'm applying to the Baltimore International Colleges' Culinary Arts program. If that doesn't work out the Community College here seems to have an excellent program. Until that gets going I'm looking to get work doing entry-level kitchen work, pretty much whatever I can get, as my only experience is playing the Mad Scientist in my own home kitchen. Any advice anyone might have for me would be much appreciated. Either way I'll be seeing you on the board!
