Like many in the area, Deborah Harari's first knowledge of Baltimore International College occurred when she was stuck in traffic on South Calvert Street and saw the students in their school uniforms -- white chef's outfits -- standing around the school's downtown buildings. Planning to go to law school and not too enthusiastic about it, Harari decided to check the place out. These white-jacketed people were learning to do for a living what she did for fun -- cook. "I wanted to do something with my life that would let me wake up and be happy all day," says Harari, who has a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from the University of Baltimore and should get her associate's degree in baking and pastry this year.
