I started school in August at Le Cordon Bleu Chicago and am already into my "second block" of classes. At first, it seemed a little overwhelming, (especially taking public transportation!) but I settled into it pretty easily and am starting to think I've got the hang of it.
I wear full uniform to class everyday, and I mean FULL uniform. I look like the biggest goofball but I've even gotten used to that! My "chef" singled me out the first day of class for wearing make-up so I've become accustom to the whole "un-glamorous" side of the cooking industry (Don't let Giada fool you...you wouldn't be caught dead in the kitchen with a V-neck shirt and painted nails)!
It's definitely been an interesting 6 weeks to say the least but I'm loving every minute of it! Sometimes I can get caught up in the rush-hour Chicago commute or long hours in the kitchen, but I'm so lucky to be doing what I love to do...COOK! Not many people get the chance so I'm one lucky girl. Alright, enough of being sentimental...
So without further ado, I hope you enjoy hearing about my experience and maybe I can even influence YOU to get yourself in the kitchen!
