Before you go to this school here are a few things you should know. 1. The advisers will lie to you by telling you how much money you will make. Not true. This is coming from a few people who went to this school who i still talk to and from personal experience. 2. Marci Hillard who works with student housing is a lazy bimbo who will lie to your face. You have to share a room with a complete stranger who might steal behind you back. Even though you are not allowed to smoke weed there basically everyone there does. When people smoke that crap it causing breathing issues for me. But basically the system is full of pot heads. Ive also had alot of money stolen behind my back from a few roommates. Craigslist have rooms for alot less and you wont have to share your room with anyone. CHS is a money trap. 3. You are in the kitchen everyday and you will cook something everyday. But be careful with some of the students. Because it can become a game show in there. 4. This one may sound like a political view but it isnt. This school is located in the most liberal place on earth. So no joking. When i attended classes here I managed to offend everyone in the class and to this day i dont know what i possibly said. I didnt learn about boulder until i had a few co workers explain to me how bad Boulder is. Bottom line If your going to this school be prepared
I was the oldest student that was there when I attended. I was older than the teachers. I was always a great cook and this was always a dream of mine. The experience was wonderful . I learned a lot ,and I met many great people that I will never forget. If you want a career in the Culinary field I would highly recommend this school.
well i went to this school and all i really have to say about it is they need chefs who are kind and supportive, not put you down and discourage you. the program itself need a lot of work....the recipes are not great quality nor are they up to date or close to anything you would cook for your family or serve in a restaurant. the program they say is nine months with ten weeks in an externship. the money you pay for school does not come back to you in your schooling in any way. in my class they gave us nothing but beets for a whole week because they were on sale at the local king soopers, chicken would come to us already rotting, roundfish didn't come at all which affected our education and often we wouldn't have ingredients that was in our recipes for the day, and there's nothing you can do about it because the food storage closes before your class begins. so think twice about this school because if you go you're gonna find yourself being the only one who gives a crap but that will soon fade because no matter how much you care, your sad classmates and lazy chefs still wont.
Classes held in a motel? Wow, your stupid. Classes are held in one of the multiple school kitchens or classrooms. Knives and cookware isn't scarce, in fact your given your own personal 21 piece mercer knife kit. . The instructors are well qualified and keep things light and entertaining while still being thorough and informative. The office staff are approachable and will help you with any problem life throws your way. I can't imagine a better learning environment for beginning chefs and patrons of the restaurant industry looking to boost those credentials
