It seems like everybody these days wants to be a chef, and I hear so many positives, and of course so many negatives about this field. It seems the only way it is worth it is if you truly love to cook, and want to devote your life to it. The way I see it, I'm already devoted! Anyone who knows me knows about my Christmas basket fiasco's (when I don't sleep during the month of December because I'm too busy cooking and baking at 3 am in a drunk/ zombie-like state). Who needs sleep when there's cooking to be done! Cooking is not a chore to me- it is an expression, a release of my creativity. I guess I never considered it a career, always more of a hobby. I'm now in my late 20's, evaluating what I am doing with my life and how I got here, and decided it's time. My dream job is not going to just happen to me. I've got to go get it.
Stay tuned for my first day as a prep cook, photos and recipes as I experiment, and the roller-coaster ride that just became my life.
