So mote it be.
I suppose things are not quite set in stone, and can change any moment...but there's no harm in making an announcement, I reckon?
No major life happenings notwithstanding, I am enrolling in the local community college in the fall - I have been accepted to the Culinary Arts program.
What does this mean now? My own restaurant or bakery? Working with Anne Burrell? Being on a Food Network television? Using my school knowledge and degree to plan fabulous meals at home?
Thankfully, out of those I've told of my college plans, nobody has asked what I plan to do once I graduate. I have no idea anyway right now...and that's way too far down the road anyway. All I know right now is that school is the first step into the wide unknown.
Take a look at this first term:
- Computer Essentials
- Food Service Technology
- Culinary Skills Lab
- Food Service Lab I
- Math Principles
Not terribly exciting, but then check these later courses out:
- Cold Food Principles
- Stocks, Soups, Sauces (I hope to roux, do you?)
- Basic AND Advanced Baking
- Culinary Nutrition
- Shellfish, Poultry, Meats
- International Cuisine (Lab and Excursion)
Yeah. I'm pretty excited. But scared. And nervous.
