you are never too old to go to school. i would be willing
to bet you are much younger than i am. i am 56yo. as soon
as the legal nightmares come to their respective conclusion
i will be going to a culinary school. i may not be able to
find a line cook position but i will have the training for
my own satisfaction.

i have still not decided on which culinary program to attend.
i have the possible programs pruned down to 4.

the international culinary school at the illinois institute of
art, chicago, illinois

institute of culinary arts
robert morris college,
aurora, illinois

culinard, the culinary arts institute of virginia college
birmingham, alabama

the new england culinary institute
montpelier, vermont

i am leaning toward culinard.
