Not even a shred.
I mean to each their own, but I would never tell someone I care about to enter a field that offers menial pay, predominately poor working environments, no weekends off, no nights off, no holidays off, 15 hour shifts, and I could go on adnausiem but I won't waste the time. Kids watch that damn TV thing, and think its a glamorous life as a Chef...
Don't misunderstand... I am a Chef. I started as a busboy 23 years ago, and I have ascended the ladder to Executive Chef amid said time. I have made an extremely successful life for myself, I am extremely good at what I do, I have worked across the world, but the undeniable inarguable truth is... this business sucks.
I acknowledge you are a young man in culinary school. Although you may not heed my wisdom, it behooves you to hear it. I can really get passionate about this conversation, as I have here before, but I already feel the anger flooding my capillaries with blood boiling... my face is burning red.. so I will stop.
