There is currently a great series going on at the
Phoenix New Times website about culinary arts school. They recruited a student at a local Phoenix culinary school who was an editor most of their life and they are reporting back about their experiences.
It's a similar concept to The Making of a Chef by Michael Ruhlman except in this case the Phoenix culinary school does not realize one of their students are reporting. If you are interested in learning more about what really goes on in culinary school then this is a must read series.
I'm sure they will find out many things that shock them about the realities of culinary school and the food service industry. It is a lot more work than most people think and I'm sure it will be an eye opening experience.
