Is it ever to late to take at least some training?

    I'm a mature computer/office professional, currently downsized.  All my life I have read cookbooks like others read mystery novels, love everything about a kitchen from the food created to the utensils.  Decent cook.  Would like to learn the professional way of doing things.  Do you think it would be worthwhile?

    I learn something new about cooking everyday, it sounds like you have a passion, if you have that much of an interest for something then pursue it...................ChefBillyB

    I am with ChefBilly on this ,

    Never look back on life and have a regret. If you feel this strong about it and since you have always enjoyed it so much, why not ?

    You have come to a great site that offers so much information and support.

    It depends on the extent of the training you'd like to get into. Why shell out all that money on school for recreational cooking? Perhaps a few beginner classes at the local community college would be right up your alley.
