    I just separated from the Navy.  I am now looking to pursue my goal of being a chef.  Being a Chef was something I wanted to be when I grew up, that has not changed. 

    I am now looking for employment in a restaurant to get the experience I need to attend the Culinary Institute of America.

    I really enjoy buying instructional books on different regions and cultures of food.  Giuliano Bugiallis book on Classic Techniques of Italian cooking is my favorite.

    I am currently residing in San Diego, and if possible would love to connect with some chefs and possibly visit some kitchens and help out.

    Hey Adrian, welcome! Did you work as a chef in the Navy at all? That would be such a cool experience just to see food served on that scale. Either way welcome we are very glad to have you. We have a strong pro community and I think you will find a lot of help there. Let us know if you have any questions.
