FSR Magazine named their top 20 culinary schools in the U.S.
Hands-on kitchen classes and practical field experience help define the measure of success.
The Secchia Institute for Culinary Education, at Grand Rapids Community College -- my local CC -- made the list! -- as well it should have. Ms. Alex and I have gotten to know a few of the instructors over the years, we've eaten at the college's restaurant many, many times, and I've cooked in their outstanding kitchens several times.
Also making the list were Kendall College, in Chicago; Indian Hills CC, in Iowa; Columbus State CC, in Ohio; and Sullivan University, in Kentucky (an honorary Heartland member).
Gene Weingarten, writing in The Washington Post about online news stories and their readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
"A vasectomy might cost as much as a year’s worth of ice cream, but that doesn’t mean it’s equally enjoyable." -Ezra Dyer, NY Times
