Going to Culinary School in Houston
Houston has always had a thriving economy. Initially it was a seaport and railroad center. It is still one of the largest ports in the world. After oil was discovered in 1901 it became and still is a petroleum production center.
It has the worlds largest healthcare and medical research center, Texas Medical Center, and Houston’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center leads the space and technology industry in the area.
Houston has scattered neighborhoods and business centers instead of a central business hub surrounded by suburbs. This enhances the diverse culture and helps a large city feels surprisingly neighborly and friendly.
You’ll find plenty of parks and outdoor activities, lots of museums, visual and performance arts, and wonderful music of all kinds. It’s a great place to live, work and go to school.
Read, Read and Read Some MoreOne of the best suggestions I have for anyone thinking of going to culinary school or just getting into the restaurant industry is to read everything you can get your hands on. Learn from professional chefs who have worked in the industry and those who have taught in culinary schools.
There are many great books available to get you started in your culinary education and I suggest you read as much as possible before making that big decision to make sure this is the right move for you. Below is just a sample of books you might be interested in checking out.
