Hello all, I am an 18 year old who has just recently dropped out of school to pursue my career as a chef. I am passionate about cooking and am very enthusiastic to become a great chef. I am aware that chefs work long hours, for me that simply can't happen. I have a girlfriend and a child who I love very much and I dont care how passionate I am about a job, they come first. I would like a 40-50 hour week once I earn my NVQ in culinary arts. Is this really the right job for me if im not prepared to put in 60-75 hour weeks? Thanks any response is greatly appreciated!
