Every loyal cook/chef/food lover knows that having the correct temperature in the oven or on the stove is very important when it comes to cooking food. The degree is not only important in the kitchen, but also important in life....
I am a senior at a local university, and it may seem like I am almost finished here but I'm far from it. I have changed my majors several times because I just couldn't find something I really loved. I've known that my real passion is cooking but my parents feel that a degree in ANYTHING is better than dropping out and going to pastry school. At first I was angry because I felt like I was wasting my time at school. But then I slowly came around and now I see the importance of having that degree, just in case the economy decides to tumble again and I am out of work!
So my plan now is to finish school in a year, and then go to baking and pastry school after.
I was wonder what my fellow passionate food people out there felt about this. Did anyone drop out and go to culinary school? Has anyone gone into a baking and pastry program while working full time?
I'd love to hear all of your thoughts!
