im curious if anyone here knows anyone, or who themselves, have gone thru this program, or programs like it, and have any successful/unsucessful stories

My friend Matt (Dj Grin) went to western. He really enjoyed the time he spent there. I think that getting real world experiance is key. He worked part time as a line cook at Outback with me. It was fast paced so he learned to be quick and efficient however working at Outback is pretty by the book, there was no room for creativity. The schooling at Western taught him how to be an artist and a chef.

i literally have zero experience w/ the food industry. i just know i love food and i want to learn everything there is to know about it. i do believe being a chef is something i will love and enjoy, as long as im given the opportunity to express my creativity and not end up stuck a line cook in a denny's.....i know im in for some serious suprises... heh
