So You Want to go to Culinary School.
May 11, 2016
I need $35,000 dollars. Anyone? I’m not gonna let a stupid dollar sign scare me away from realizing my dream of being referred to as “Chef Alex.”
At my recent meeting at ICC (International Culinary Center) I learned several things, besides the amount I will need, in order to attend.
They offer scholarships. Too bad their scholarship doesn’t cover the whole shebang. It won’t even cover the 10 grand I need just to start, but hey I plan on getting that scholarship because every freaking penny counts.
I also need to have 9 – 14 months free, where my acting career won’t interfere with culinary school, cause they don’t give you a leave of absence without a doctor’s note.
Hmm I guess there really aren’t “several things I need to attend.” I just need money and time. Le sigh.
If I play my cards right and apply for scholarships and financial aid I just might be able to go this Summer or Fall. Oh, and I can’t book anything that takes me away from NYC. Guess I just have to get that TV show or production contract. Solve everything all at once.
I have my work cut out for me, unless someone wants to give me some money… I’ll cook you an amazing meal after I graduate… anyone?
