Staring down a milestone age, Bob Foulkes was not content to experience life from the comfort of his easy chair. 60 years old, semi-retired, restless, and yes, bored, Bob was ready for his next adventure when he enrolls in a 6 month culinary program — 1,000 hours of intensive training in the art of classical French cooking. This behind the scenes account is humorous, eye-opening and inspiring.
