I want a career. I want a career that I totally enjoy. I'm thinking I'd be great at many things, but don't have a lot of time to spend years and years in school. So I've been kicking around some ideas such as cosmetology, nursing, or going back into the computer business. But the one thing that keeps edging into my brain that I've not seriously considered yet is Culinary school.
Let's face it, I'm a natural in the kitchen. Remember the Panang I showed you guys on my blog? I learned how to make that through trial and error. I ate enough of it in restaurants that I was able to detect the flavors individually and get an idea of how it was made. And if I detected a flavor that I wasn't familiar with I asked what it was. Anyone who has eaten my Panang and eaten it in restaurants can tell you that mine is spot on and has authenticity to it.
There isn't anything about cooking that intimidates me, I'm always making up my own recipes on the fly, and everyone who eats my food raves about it. I can even make freezer bag food for backpacking that's not half bad lol! But I think I still have a lot to learn about food. With the right training I feel I could master it and make a name for myself.
I don't know a thing about Culinary school, how much it costs, etc...or if it's at all realistic given my circumstances, but I am going to look into it. If any of my readers know a professional chef I'd sure like to talk to them...so send 'em my way...
