Hello all. My name is Sanjay, and I live in Houston, TX. I've always felt a pull to cook, but let my family talk me out of it for a long while. Early this year some circumstances occurred in my life which prompted me to re-evaluate my life, and I decided I should just go for it. I've enrolled in the Culinary Arts program at the Art Institute of Houston, and will be starting classes on Monday, October 6th. I've been unemployed for the last 6 months, mainly due to a lack of jobs in the computer industry, which I was doing before the career change, but recently got a job at Pappas Seafood, and I will be working there to help fund my way through school for the next 2+ years. Glad to meet everyone and hope to hear from all of you as I begin my journey into the passion that brings us all here - cooking.
