Chef Dawn...

I like the sound of that.

So, I am doing something about it!

I am going back to college to get my culinary diploma!!

I met with the school's administrator today (it's a private school and you have to be interviewed to be accepted) and I loved her. I loved the school and I loved the Master Chef (he didn't yell or swear at his students like my hero, Chef Ramsay though) LOL.

My journey will begin on June 27th when I take the recreational cooking course on Monday evenings from 6:00 to 10:00...it is only for four weeks, but it will give me an idea on whether I want to continue the journey in September, when I would attend on Thursday nights from 6:00 to 10:00. This course will be the practical (hands on) part of the diploma and then next year, I would take the theoretical side on Tuesday nights. I could do both at the same time, but I don't want to overdo it and with three boys to chauffeur from hockey to soccer to doctor's appointments, etc., I think I would be overstretching myself.

So, I am pumped! I love to cook and I would love to be able to hang a diploma on my wall! I left high school and went straight to work, so the accomplishment of receiving a diploma would be the icing on the cake (excuse the pun!) This whole concept was born from a need for me to have more "Dawn Time". I thought about a yoga class or a pottery class, but I know I would end up going once or twice and then quitting. Cooking is something I love and enjoy. I will learn some cool techniques that I can use at home as well...it's an all 'round good thing!

YAY ME! Pin It
