A year ago today, my #culinaryschool adventure began..... I was at an interesting point in my life.....debating about whether to stop teaching to pursue acting more and what I wanted to do with my life instead..... Culinary school had been a dream in my head for the last two years (longer if I really think about how long I've loved cooking shows and cooking in general.....) but who was I to give up a job in a tumultuous market, especially one where I was literally shaping the future.
Deciding to step out on faith to follow my acting dreams was a decision that didn't come easily......some days, especially considering the new struggle working for myself has created during the last year, I wonder if it was even the right decision.... But deciding to start culinary school was an easy choice. I just went for it, jumped in with both feet as I threw caution to the wind.....and for once in my life, didn't look back and second guess my decision.
One year later, today marks day one of my externship at the fabulous @hiddenmannacafe in Matteson!! This is the last bit of coursework I have to complete--the real world experience part!
This is when it gets real, y'all......home cheffing in my kitchen is one thing, but working in a REAL kitchen.....totally different beast!
Guess it's time to put my money where other people's mouths are....... #escoffierproud #futurechef #hiddenmannacafe #followyourdreams
