    Hey you guys. I'm Austyn Sumrall. I just turned 21 and I'm from Laurel, MS and I want to become a chef. I don't have the money for culinary school but I want to follow my passion and will do whatever it takes. Just need some help and guidance.

    Welcome to ChefTalk (sorry for the late reply). You do not need to go to culinary school to become a chef. Start learning the basics, cuts, how to use a knife properly, how to make stocks, sauces. Just work for someone who is willing to be a mentor to you.
