    Passion, they know when you have it, it shows when you don't................ChefBillyB
     
  5. Do what the chef says, how the chef wants it, before the chef tells you to do it.

    "'If in doubt, throw it out'''  If you would not eat it, or be proud of it,  then don't serve it.

    Dress up inexpensive ingredients and sell them for as much money as possible to the snooty rich people in the dining room.

    OR: Cook really well.

    Practically the same thing.

    It wasn't until I grew up and matured that I developed a true understanding and respect for food and that it was the one thing that was going to afford me a great family and life outside the kitchen.

    Cooking is about creating good food that is spiced with knowledge and flair, but the secret ingredients are PASSION, INTEGRITY, and knowing & understanding your taste buds.... 

    Be ready to learn on a daily basis... Great Chefs r always open to learning things and skills from any one, the street hot dog vendor/the newbie line cook/ the dishwasher/ any one can show u another twist to ur masterpiece and help in making it better
