    My career is at a crossroads, and any wise advice would be appreciated.

    I too am not a chef but I believe that in order to fully understand the environment you are going to be in, the best experience is a hands on experience.  If you are in doubt as to your abilities to run a kitchen, start running a small one.  Once you get the hang of it, explore bigger better...

    Do chefs use other people's Recipes

    I agree with our chefs here.  Restaurants usually serve a variation of a dish, so you are right about the "added twist".  Incidentally, I am not a chef but learned how to cook by watching our chefs in action :)

    From Farm to Table-Top: An Innovative Restaurant Concept

    I guess this is because of the health craze too.  Nowadays people are more conscious about what they eat, how its processed and where it comes from.  Farm to kitchen places is a good way of ensuring that you get healthy food.

    Gargantuan Tipping

    I usually tip 15% regardless of how the service was(except of course in extreme cases where the staff yells at you etc).  I used to wait tables and its like my way of giving back to the wait staff coz being a waiter can be hard! When service is really really good then I leave a 20-25% tip. :)
