Hi Brady, do you mean you want to become a professional cook? If so, there's so much you can do in your own home kitchen. The best way to train for any kind of cooking job is by simply cooking a lot. So much of cooking is about repetition of skills and working to improve these skills as you go. Are you concerned that without a cooking school degree it will be difficult to get a job? Not having a degree may pose some challenges but you could also consider creating an Instagram account where you document what you cook -- this could give you something to refer people to so they can see your range of experience and the quality of your cooking. Hope this is helpful!
