Anybody can cook but it takes a dedicated person to become a professional chef. It takes years to develop the knowledge and skills. You start at the bottom and work your way up through the ranks. You have to have a thick skin to survive in the demanding, pressure cooker, chaotic environment of a busy kitchen. Anyone considering a culinary career should read this book.
Professional cooking is like a sport. It takes stamina and endurance. Those who start in grade school develop fundamentals at an earlier age than those who start in Jr High or High School. Lorenzo Cain of the Kansas City Royals did not start playing baseball until he was a sophomore in high school - a time when most kids decide baseball isn't for them. And in 2015 he helped the Royals win the World Series. Exception rather than the rule. So for those 'older' chefs who are behind the curve - bring your life experiences, work hard and become the exception!
