I'm looking at making a drastic change in my occupation... I've found that I have some-what of a knack for cooking, and thoroughly enjoy it. But, my concern is job openings and pay. I don't want to do anything that I won't enjoy, but I also need to pick something that is a logical choice and will support me and my family. I was wondering if some of you would care to share you beginning experiences and where you're at now (annonymously, via PM, whatever) or any other helpful information. I am by no means experienced, I've only cooked for friends/family, and have no formal training. With that in mind, I know I'd have to go to some culinary arts school to even begin some-what of a career. It's almost time to cut my loses in my current job field and pick something else... just trying to get some information before I commit. Thanks!
