p.s. i have huge respect for chefs at all levels of cusine.
If only I could go back to my twenties again. A cooking carreer would be my dream (of course with my current knowledge). I would take a course in cullinary arts from a prestigeous cooking school, then take a teaching course, and become a cooking teacher, or proffesor of culinary arts. That way I could be creative, share my love for cooking, and teach others, all at the same time. Plus, I'd get summers off.
What more could a guy ask for in a job?
Welcome to DC. Whether you aspire to become a proffesional chef, or just the chef of your own kitchen, there are a great many here who can help you learn anything you could ever want to know, about nearly any subject. Of course, the advise ranges from sage to silly, depending on who's giving it, what the question is, and the mood of the person giving it. But it's never boring, always freindly, and always will give you something valuable to walk away with. There's a great group of people here. Enjoy.
