Hi everyone! I'm looking into the baking & patisserie program at the Western Culinary Institute in Portland, and I was hoping that I could get some honest opinions about it here. I have no professional experience in the hospitality industry, but I love baking as a hobby and am considering a career change. How wise would it be for someone like me to enroll in culinary school? Is it better to have experience going into school, or can you really start there like the admissions people say? What do you wish someone would have told you before you made the decision to go?
I'm just trying to get as much information as I can, and I would really appreciate hearing about everyone's experiences, good, bad or indifferent. Thanks so much in advance!
