i am a culinary student in new orleans. i've been cooking for about 5 years before i went to school. i agree that experience is much more important in this field than classroom training. more can be learned from working under good chefs than from any textbook. but, i have also 'unlearned' a lot of bad habits in culinary school that i learned in the field.
having two degrees yourself, you should realize the importance of formal training. it is a growing trend in the culinary field and i think it will only get harder to get a cooking job without that AA.
