    Hey everyone.

    Im thinking of becoming a chef. I have started to like cooking latley because its hands on and creative.

    I am thinking of getting some work experiance as a chef. I figure if i like a day of slicing vegtables i will like everything else about being a chef.

    I was also wondering is their any Scorpio chefs out there?

    hi newbie, welcome,

    I understand that becoming a scorpion chef involves years of intensive & dangerous training deep in the Himalayas. Scorpion cuisine is similar to Japanese blow fish in technique. It is essential that the arachnid is carefully jointed & its poison sacks disregarded completely. Generally scorpions are sauteed & taste like chicken .
    I would suggest 2 for a starter & 4 for a main course.
    My renowned & respected fellow chef the great Soussweets from
    New Orleans jail is a world expert on Cuisine de Scorpianus, im sure he would be happy to provide you with detailed butchering techniques on his release in 2035.

    I would never risk my life for something that tasted like chiken. I am sure it would take much traning because somone elses life would be in your hands.

    haha you had me going for a second - I was picturing tibetin munks learning the art of blow fish cooking - living a strict life away from women or men :p.

    These forums are great for begginer Chefs like me. I think i will find everything i need here. I also look forward to making new friends overseas.

    Till next time......

    Hey Newbie,
    welcome, and be careful if your new coworkers send you looking for a stove stretcher or a left handed saute pan!! It can be the best job in the world if you have the passion. It can eat you alive if you don't.

    I spent my first few hours in the kitchen last night at nice Italian resaurant in town. My knife skill have improved and i got to peal the skins off the capcicums. I acctually quite enjoyed it. I did feel the pressure on my back and feet but i got used to it. If i stayed at this resaurant i would learn allot. They have about 4 or 5 chefs and a master chef. I am nervous though because i think i would get fired if i didnt live up to the master chefs expectations. I still have allot of thinking to do.
