Hi, I hope this is the right place for this topic. Anyhow, I have been thinking about going into culinary industry and don't know whether it's the right choice. I hate my job right now and would like to switch my career, but don't know what yet since there's a lot of pros and cons in everything you do. I love to cook and I would really like to become a chef one day. But I don't know if I'll ever succeed as a chef. One thing that kind of deter me away from this industry is the health benefits...I heard the health benefits aren't great at all. Is that true? Or does it depend on the restaurant you work for? Another thing is that I feel like I'm too old to go into this industry. I feel that a lot of people start out as a chef really young and I won't be able to do well if I start now. I'm in my mid twenties and I feel too old to do anything else. Well, any feedback would greatly appreciated. Thanks.
