It seems like a lifetime ago when I started culinary school back in July 2011, but time flies and tomorrow will officially be my last core class before a 4 month externship!
I did decide to stay local rather than travel to be close to family and the boyfriend as well as to save some $$ and hopefully gain a better insight into the Sarasota culinary scene.
I do recommend culinary school to anyone thinking about it - as long as you put forth all of your efforts to learn every aspect they are teaching you and dont just slack off. You are paying them to teach you, so why not ask the stupid questions and get the most bang for your buck!?
