The ONLY place within a reasonable driving distance to me that offers any type of Culinary courses is a local vocational school. Here is the link to the culinary page: http://voc.leeschools.net/program_detail.asp?ID=19 They do have two locations. North and Central. Central is closest (10 minutes drive, even with traffic) and the other is about a 30-40 minute drive to Cape Coral. Opinions please! The only other school close to me is a couple of hours drive up the interstate. At the prices of gas, it is just not do-able.
