la nourriture française?

I really wish I had finished cooking school.  I made it through knife and sauce skills, but in hindsight, I should have stuck around for baking and production classes.  There is no substitute for a French culinary education.  Make sure the budget you supply for this next Call includes a culinary expedition while you’re delivering your work.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Fondation François Schneider for Contemporary Talents, an international art competition.  The competition is open to individuals AND groups, it appears to be both free AND offer huge project awards.  The deadline is about 2 weeks away, and you’ll need the time to read the rules, ha.  So, don’t delay…
