I think its best to enjoy it in youre own time. I found when I had a cooking job, I wouldnt want to cook for myself when I was off work. Maybe that was just my own lameness, but I can see it happening.

yeah I was doing a chef apprenticeship for a bit - fucking shit.

My boss was a pratt + I had to work weekends so whenever I turned up to work I was rocking a killer hangover, or I just didn't go out. Bad job.

NO... cook for yourself. Though the world of haute cuisine might go wanting without your frozen pizza w/ a side of exploded krylon recipie...

 

Seriously though, you look like you've gained at least 10 pounds since the last time I saw you so you must be getting food somewhere...

Lately I've been having an omlette everyday about now... sautee some onions, crisp up some bacon and toss shredded mexican cheese and a little salsa! BOING! Hmmm... now I'm looking at the stove...

Working in restaurants sucks. Once you cook for a living you won't enjoy it any more. True story.

I love cooking, and I was really close to going to cooking school, even went and visited a few with Effyoo, but then I realized there is absolutely no way I could deal with the stress of working in a kitchen. Anyone who's been there knows what I'm talking about. Shit's hectic, son..

anyone who loves to cook needs to actually do hard time in a restaurant kitchen before they sign off on it as thier new career

 

cooking is productive, fun, creative, meditative, etc etc etc ..until you get behind the line.

kitchens attract crazy people and ex cons, i used to work with coke fiends, dope heads, drunks, and guys who went back to jail when their shift was over.

i've had a gazillion shouting matches, haha one time i saw a waiter do a crazy dive through a line window past teh expediter to punch a cook on the other side

 

cooking professionally is a tough job with high burn out potential, no pun intended.

 

but yeah, good luck, if you love it, you love it

and i miss it sometimes.
