    Hello Cheftalk community,

       I'm LaRoux and I've always been able to appreciate the culinary arts, it's been a interest for a long time and I've discovered in the last year and a half it has been come somewhat of a passion. A bit of a late starter at 38 years of age, however, I am looking to take cooking a bit more seriously and looking forward to learning whatever I can.

    It's a pleasure to be here among you, thank you for having me.

    All the best,

    — LaRoux

    Welcome LaRoux. When you say you are looking to take cooking more seriously do you mean cook professionally? If so I always give people the same advice. A love for cooking and a love for cooking professionally are two different worlds. If you are thinking of going the pro route then work in a few different environments first such as a catering company, bakeshop, restaurant. Even just for 2-3 months to get a feel for what they are about. Do this before signing all of your savings to attend a culinary school. Most of the people I went to culinary school with (myself included) eventually left the industry because it can be a very tough life.
