im asking you all this question in hopes of finding an answer of my own, Why do you do it? Work in a hot kitchen? work long hours with no break ? kill your feet/back/body? work harder than anyone else and get paid peanuts? work when everyone else is playing? we are all here because we chose to work in kitchens for the love of food, in your opinion, is it worth it? after being in the industry for about 11 years, and i guess i've been having a few hard/long days at work, i'd love to be inspired by hearing your comments. hearing why you love working in a kitchen and what is your drive that makes you kick butt in the kitchen everyday ?
