Argggg.what the hell might have to start drinking again
I learn everything I put in practice in my kitchen from a derelict. I loved being his apprentice. Heck, I'd go back and be his apprentice if i could. Not a lot of kids these days willing to learn and take orders. Like it was stated a few posts back, they feel entitled to everything after dropping a sum of money on school. I knew from the start that school meant only a fraction of what it was to be a cook and not even a decimal of what it meant to be a real chef.
I only have 6 years experience in kitchens and no culinary school but I love love cooking! Im always asking questions and trying to learn and plate one new dish a week or day . I have had "chefs" that went to school ask me how to make Mexican rice. Then when they make it they take all the credit. lol huh?egos. I have NO ego just pride in my work. I am a retired Police Officer too so it helps to show respect for the chefs and to listen and learn. I am used to a military type work environment sometimes it works against me because some kitchens are just a bunch of derelicts!! haha you know what I mean...
