Hi,I need advice on freezing brownies. Should I do it? Has anyone else ever done this and what were your results? I volunteer with the USO and plan to bake 100 brownies ahead of time for an event.

Just my two cents worth. As far as culinary school is concerned, have you checked out the local community college for culinary degrees? You can get an excellent education at half the cost and the same experience as the big name schools. You learn how to do the same things at the half the cost. We had two chefs at my local community college, one went to the CIA and the other to another local community college. They both taught us the same thing maybe different methods...
Good luck and have fun!!Leslie
Brianna,I'm so glad you were able to find someone to help you. I'm in the Triangle area of the state or I would have volunteered my services.Good luck and have fun!Leslie
Check with Crawford's Creations in High Point. She is a great lady and I learned so much from her in several classes. She might be willing to work with you on the costs. I think her website is crawfordscreations.comLeslie
