There's a split opinion between attending culinary school and having real life experience. What made you decide on doing formal training (since you already had the experience)?

Since we are expecting another child, I have been Googling how to make healthy baby food, as I would like to create my own purees to feed to my baby.
Hardest lesson you've learned:
