It's great to find a forum like this. I'm a culinary lifer, attended CIA almost 20 years ago and have worked in just about every scenario since then. I'm currently living in Portland, OR where I'm a Sous Chef for the Bon Appetit Corporation, working at their Intel account. I'm going back to school for my Bachelors in Culinary Management, upon completion I am switching gears and hopefully getting into teaching and eventually buying my own place down the line. I hope to meet some like-minded industry vets and newbies here, do a little networking and a lot of smack talking.
