Hi. I'm new to the board, but not the industry, worked in restaurants and hotel for 7yrs I did an associates degree in culinary arts straight out of school(16-1 , but it was very badly run and I spent more time in theory classes(learning law?!?!) than in the kitchen. I've not had the opportunity to work under any good chefs in any interesting kitchens. So my skills haven't developed as far as i thought they would have 7yrs in. I'm young enough to change my bad habits and solvent enough to not curl into a ball at the thought of going into student loan debt. I have been looking at Le Cordon Bleu in London and France And recently Ecole Ferrandi The hope is to be able to work while at school and to work after the courses end. Any help, opinions or experiences to help me make a choice would be appreciated.....Also i've chosen those specific schools because I want to work in Europe. eta...thanks in advance!
