I'm curious Because I really enjoy Cooking but surprisingly enough my biggest passion in life is to live comfortably with a 9-5 making decent money for a 20 year old and slowly work my way up. Now I could just take the maintenance route and become some technician especially with prior experience in the military but I want to do something I completely enjoy and I love cooking it's fun. I don't mind cooking on a line but that job doesn't pay you well unless you work towards a well regarded kitchen, and sometimes that's not me. When I cook I prefer the creation and challanging of myself to making something completely new and original or different. I honestly enjoy making new things , and I don't think being a chef is specifically what i want, and again I won't be happy just making the cut with paychecks,I'm not ooking for big cash but I'm looking for something in between where I can live comfortably. what is a pastry chef like? is it difficult to work on a daily basis. Can anyone give me any idea of options available that fit what I have mentioned?
