    A friend of mine who is a short order cook recommended this I love reading about anything to do with the culinary world I'm a voracious Food Network watcher too so this was an easy buyIt's well written and goes into a lot of detail The author paints a nice picture about the students and professors who prefer to be addressed as Chef and exposes some pretty pathetic practices at the school I won't bother to explain but let's just say elementary school bullshit is alive and well in culinary schoolsStrongly recommend the read I own many of this author's other books too and find them generally good

    Loved this book Perfect for those of us that love to cook and will never go to culinary school but want to live vicariously It was funny at times and sad too but it was always so interesting I loved the Anthony Bourdain one but that is so old it was nice to read what is happening in the schools these days If you want to know what really goes on at these cooking schools then I can't recommend enough that you read this one I think about it every time I go to restaurant to eat

    I went to culinary school after this author did and she painted the most accurate picture of culinary school I ever read Before I went I read the other culinary school books and they were all so stars in your eyes about it I couldn’t wait to go Then I got there and it was yes chef yes chef anything you want chef with them cursing Gordan Ramsay style and your friends helping you and other students salting your soup and stealing your mise because the competition was hard to get the best externshipI graduated two years ago and I work on the line in a restaurant in New York and my chef ther said to read this He said it was the most accurate book about culinary school and he is right If you want to know what culinary school is like this is the book I know from first hand

    Yep that’s OCI or Oregon Culinary Institute for anyone not in Portland or anyone in Portland because as I found out when I tried to get a job no one has ever heard of OCI I didn’t know the author even though we went to the same school but I talked to her once in the student lounge I lost my bus money and was asking if anyone could lend me a few bucks and she gave me some money and said to keep it Real nice considering I didn’t know her I got around to reading her book and that’s exactly what culinary school was like I'd say the book was exactly what school was like and a really interesting read If you want to know what it is really like at culinary school I’d read this I’d really read this if you are thinking of going I wish I had before I went there

    Best culinary school book since Anthony Bourdain I could not put this page turner down I felt like a spy seeing everything that happened behind the scenes at culinary school and it was fascinating After Anthony Bourdain this is now my favorite food writer I'll never look at my favorite chef or restaurant the same again A real must read of a book

    Well written informativeThis was a good look into the world of culinary school warts and all As she is a journalist I wished the author had done even research into how typical the smallish percentage of cooking vs lecture and cleaning were in this particular school compared to others Do all schools just teach techniue or do others teach why and do they teach creative techniues and how to develop recipes? It also seemed like she was the only one who was a very good student or really loved cooking I kept thinking that her being older than the others and experienced in the work world changed her perspective greatly How aware was she of how much this affected her experience?

    SJ Sebellin Ross is a journalist by trade but like so many of us is also a foodie She decided that she wanted to go to culinary school and write a blog and subseuently this book about her experience I followed her blog while she was going and enjoyed it so I picked up the book for the KindleSebellin Ross approached a wide variety of culinary schools with her plan finally settling on a small regional school The plan was that she'd do the culinary school for the traditional 3 semesters 40 days per semester and the baking school for 1 At the end of her time in the culinary portion it seems obvious from what she says in the book anyway that the school was having issues It also seems that some of her classmates found out that she was blogging about the entire experience and the offer to do the baking curriculum was rescinded I enjoyed this book though I'd read many of the stories before on the blog I think I was most surprised by how much common culinary schools don't teachI guess it goes to show that in the industry real world experience probably is bestor maybe a CIA education The book doesn't talk about how some of the well known schools differ from the one she went to though it does say that most people who go to culinary school go to one like she did All in all while it sounds like Sebellin Ross had some valuable experiences it seems that nothing was what sheor Iexpected Guess I'll stick to being a home cook and baker and going out to eat at fancy restaurants ;

    Liked the book many good observations on the reality of culinary school but at times felt the author was drawing over generalized conclusions on the nature of culinary schools in general that were in fact simply an artifact of her having chosen a bad culinary school for herself In any case worth reading particularly as both a contrast and comparison to the Ruhlman book

    I bought this book for my wife but it was so fascinating I ended up reading it before she did Very interesting Felt like it was a really honest account of culinary school I'm very interested in cooking and it was fascinating to see exactly how chefs are trained Highly recommend
