Hello all, My name's John. I just completed my externship for culinary school and will be graduating on Monday with my Diploma. I'm continuing on, taking one class here and there till I get my Degree. I just came out of a nearly 15 year career in architecture and decided to finally go for my dream of owning a small bistro. Going back to school at 32 was quite a trip, but it's been manageable and now I'm finally done (for the most part). I'm now 34 and am planning to achieve my goal of opening my doors within the next one to two years. I'm currently working for a country club who's executive chef is about to take his master chef exam so needless to say I'm getting some quite hefty on the job experience that I can hopefully carry with me to my own business. That's about it, in a nutshell. Glad I found this place. There are so many resources here I've found useful already.
