Hello all, I am enrolled in a one year chef training program starting in January. I am very excited, but also incredibly nervous! I have never had any experience in a professional kitchen. So my question is, what can I do between now and then to start preparing myself for life in culinary school!? Someone recently suggested that I try to apprentice at a butcher shop, which I thought would be very useful. Are there any books out there that could help me? I love to cook at home, but have never had any training and I am feeling like I might be in over my head! thanks for the help!
