    Find a Chef you respect and look up to. Ask to work for free for them in return for learning everything they can teach you. That's how I did it and I don't regret all those unpaid days of shit work. It was a great experience and it made me a good cook.

    The only downside is you need to keep your paying job. Makes for long days and hardly any time off, but, it will pay off in the end.
