It's a New Year and time for a new beginning, a new challenge. I have always wanted to attend a cooking school ever since the day I tasted a meal at a restaurant where the chef had attended a famous Paris school.

After eating "fried and dried" pork chops and corn for much of my growing-up years and didn't think anything was wrong with that at the time, my taste buds were awakened by this chef. I wanted to taste "grown-up food" and be able to make it myself. Although I have never been able to attend a cooking school, I still long to be a student there. Someday I will, but for now, I will try to learn what I can on my own so that I will be more prepared when the day comes that I can attend.

I will use resources from Le Cordon Bleu, the internet, and my favorite cookbooks. Allez...
