Bien hecho (well done). In Portland, CEC's Western Culinary Institute is the subject of a pending case by former students seeking refunds for tuition, who claim a host of problems with the Portland program. I am one of the attorneys on the case. There is also a consumer case pending in Cal. arising out of the Cal Cul. Academy program. For those interested, here's a link to info on the Oregon case: http://www.pspc.com/category/western-culinary-institute


That's a real shame. As much as I like to see true talent celebrated, this celebrity-chef business is getting way out of hand. It's a shame really. A lot of people out there trying to be more than they are. More show than flavor. And anyone who's read Bourdaine's books should at least have a real hint of the reality. It's one of the reasons I've stayed at home. I'd love to be a better cook and I know I could be in a professional setting, but I have to think about family and my life going forward and I'm not as young as I used to be.

Good luck and thanks for speaking out on this. I would have never known their reputation.
