Any Pastry Chefs available to offer guidance?
I am getting ready to end my current career and go to culinary school to become a pastry chef. I'm already 36 so this is a pretty big step for me and I'm so very excited!!! In Los Angeles, how much do entry level pastry cooks average per year / week or hour? How difficult is it to break in to a good restaurant? Are there specific websites/headhunters that chefs and cooks use to find work? I am thinking of attending Kitchen Academy in Hollywood - does anyone have any experience with this school?

I'd pass on the Kitchen Academy located in Hollywood and South Pasadena since the $20,000 tuition [or so-called scholarship loan] for a six-months crash course is truly meaningless and of no serious value when compared to the $56,000+ tuition for the full-course culinary course at the Culinary Institute in Pasadena...
