I am supposed to be a Chef

Other than private security. most of the jobs I have had were related to cooking. So after my career in security ended, I went back to school (with the help of a grant called parents) and started my journey toward being a chef. The classes were a pain on my back, but as I progressed the pain got better. The course was for a Chef de Cuisine, 4 months practical, 4 months theory.

This was all backward as we should have been able to do a mix up of theory and practical the first 4 months. Then straight kitchen time till the end. They wanted to keep classes rotating for maximum income.nutrition

After graduation ( managed to pull off an 80% ), I started my career in cooking in a medium sized restaurant. Very whole foods, everything  local grown in their own garden. A chef ‘s paradise. Then I met my boss. She hired me as a chef but what she wanted was a dishwasher and a counter person.

When I went in for my second and last day, She started in on how to do the dishes properly. My favorite was when I supposedly could not make a clubhouse sandwich properly. That was the last time I worked there. It was such a nice restaurant. Then depression set in and I haven’t been able to work for 2 years.

I think I may have told this story before, but it needs telling again as I am really starting to feel better. Emotionally anyway, physically I need to work on. I start a doctor led program on the first of October.

I will start to look for work this week, hopefully I will be successful. Wish me luck!

  1. Sorry about your problems with the last job, but it’s pretty awesome you made it through the cooking course! I’m afraid I would have been kicked out after day one… I know how it feels to be out of work after a bad work experience, same thing happened for me. Good luck with the job hunt!!!
