just wanted to introduce myself. my name is hillary and i am entering the wonderful world of food. my interest is in pastry arts specifically. i am an engineer by trade but have grown weary of the drudgery of nerddom. i am taking a master baking course at the 'new school' here in nyc this march. i hope to also take more formal coursework perhaps at ICE when finances permit. to date, i have little experience in the food industry outside of a high school job (1 yr) and planning catered functions for a couple special events (100-200ppl). hopefully this and my basic skillset will be enough to get me some kind of related work.
