After 7 years of doing stuff I don't really find all that enjoying I have decided to pursue my true passion and go to Culinary School. I have always dreamed of eventually running my own inn or restaurant and don't know why I didn't pursue a career in food earlier in my education. I am now in a little bit of academic debt, but just don't think that continuing my current education would be worth it.
Anyways I was accepted at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City and have looked into the Culinary Institute of America, and Johnson and Wales. I would rather do a one year program but was wondering if there are any chowhounds out there with advice on culinary schools. Also does anyone know where I could find some scholarships?
Thanks so much.
