    I've never been a chef but thought about it a lot when I was younger. My career decision was between cooking and aeronautical engineering. Engineering won out and now I help the Navy keep thier communications satellites working. I've always had a passion for cooking and eating good food. Now I'm looking for some semi-formal training. I'm not thinking of changing careers anytime soon and don't have the time to commit to professional level courses but I'd like to get some good instruction on technique as well as getting out of my rut of cooking the same five ingredients all the time. I'm looking forward to what I'll find and learn here. I'll do a lot of searching before I start to post but for now I'd appreciate any advice you might have on expanding my culinary horizons.
    Thanks, Dan
