Hey guys my name is Luis, im 18 years of age and im a currently a culinary arts student and plans to work in this industry in the future. I just have always thought about this and i really wanted to find out an answer from a person currently working in this industry. how often do chefs get time off? i am aware that chef working hours can be very long but how often do they have time for leisure activities and free time? eg: spend time with family/friends, go to the gym, play sports etc.. Thank you very much!
