Well put! I love cooking at home for me and my wife, sometimes for my daughter's family, occasionally for guests. It's relaxing, creative, and fun, and I'm pretty good at it. But doing it for a living? I don't think so! In the first place, I HATE WORK!I wish people would get the hang of the concept that working in a kitchen is not like Ratatouille--first priority is not creativity, passion, and a bold heart. First priorities in the restaurant business are consistency, thick skin, honesty, and cleanliness. You create one amazing, insightful, seasonal dish that people just love. Good job. And thanks to Culinary School, you can say what it is in French! Now make 45 of them a night 6 nights a week.
