Any idea on how I can transition from an unemployed computer person to a cook?

I used to be a computer programmer who got laid off several years ago and have been unable to get back in the industry. In the meantime I have found the love of my life -- cooking! Now I want to try to getting cooking jobs . . . nothing to fancy, just a normal cook job. Unfortunately going to school to get a certificate isn't an option and all my experience cooking is for my family, who love it btw, but I have no real professional experience. Any ideas??
