The mini series continues! After you all so graciously allowed me to ramble on and on last week, I’m back to ramble on a little bit more. Since I already explained how I came to the decision to go to culinary school, today I’m going to share a little bit more about my actual experience in school.
Did I enjoy it? What was it like? All of those nitty gritty details.
To give you a little bit of background, I came to the final decision to go to culinary school back in early fall of 2011 and enrolled in January 2012. After researching schools all over the country (California, New York City, you name it), I visited a smaller, top-ranked culinary school named L’Academie de Cuisine (LADC), which is located in the suburbs of Washington, DC.
I was instantly attracted to its small class sizes, intimate learning environment, and ‘no frills/real world’ attitude. They didn’t sugar-coat or glamorize the restaurant industry (as many of the other schools I visited appeared to do), and their curriculum was menu-oriented, as opposed to a standard block format. They said it like it was.
