    Hi all,

    Just came across this site the other night & its pretty amazing!  Am planning on attending culinary school next year (finally!!) as I have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to take a program and have most of it funded for me.  As a single parent opportunities like this are unimaginable and now that my kids are a bit older I am going to grab whats being given to me & embrace it.  

    Looking forward to meeting you all and hope that I am finally going to be able to fulfill my dream :)

    Aloha, Welcome to Chef Talk MissyD.

    Right?!  Isn’t this place fantastic?

    I was doing the same thing about a year ago.  I was searching the net for some questions and here I am!  I’ve learned so much as a Home Cook, just a note on that.  The three Pro forums are for folks employed in the Food Industries, us Home Experts are asked to read only.  Don’t forget about the Articles, Reviews and Galleries; especially the Special Guest Forum, that's good stuff.  You may want to look for past topics in the Search bar at the top of the page, as many times you will find what you’re looking for there.  If once you’ve gone over the Tutorials, FAQ and the Communities Guidelines and you still have a question in regards to the website, PM a Mod or Admin person. 

    And good for you!  Go get ‘em!

    Thanks so much!

    Went to my first info session last week and going to see a different culinary school this Friday.  Going to be hard to choose which one to go to & all of the paperwork that needs to be done in order for funding is crazy!

    Hi MissyD!

    I just finished my first semester of culinary school. It was a blast, and I'm looking forward to next semester! Good luck with your culinary pursuits and welcome to ChefTalk.

    Pateachoux,

    Thanks so much.  I can't wait to start school!  Right now I'm kind of at a loss as to which school/program to attend.  My school of preference has a 10+ month wait list for the culinary arts program & a 1 1/2 year wait for the baking & pastry program.  YIKES!  Hopefully I won't have to wait that long.
