As a chef wannabe I was thrilled when my girlfriend gave me the "essentials of fine cooking" class (amateur class 40hrs).
I couldn't wait for my class to start and now I'm freaking out because I only have 2 more sessions left.


Granted, It's "only" the amateur class, but it makes me wanna do more. I'm actually contemplating quitting my career in digital retouching to enroll in their career program.

During the course of the program we had 4 different faculty members and they were all great for different reasons.
I also had a chance to talk to students in other classes (career classes cooking and pastry) and they all were thrilled with the school.

Seriously - if you enroll you might just meet me there, I 'm so into this school...

Good luck - let me know if there are any questions I might be able to answer. :chef:
