I have been cooking for years but in a semi-professional environment where i hosted dinners for friends & colleagues. cooked as volunteer in soup kitchens for hundreds of people. and worked in restaurants part time ..but not too much. but everywhere i read, there's discouragement as a chef words like 'you will be shouted at' 'working long hours' 'low pay' 'physical toll on your body' i come from advertising where people shout at u all the time in front of others u work on weekends under a hangover u work all night till 1 am then show up to work at 9 am. you dont get much recognition but at best a pat on the back and pay raise is minimal to none for years. but atleast as a chef the work itself is satisfying...a dish coming together is better than a stupid presentation coming together where blood and sweat went in. my end goal is to have a business of my own. how realistic am i ?
