No matter where you choose to work, you're going to learn something. An interview is just that. As you explain yourself to the manager, he or she will decide where your present talents will fit in the kitchen. You will probably start at a low position and through your motivation and work ethic will prove you can be brought up through the ranks.   If I was interviewing you I would tell you that cooking at home for friends is NOT the same as cooking in a high volume...
QUOTE......"IF the anecdote about French Laundry is true. You'd probably have to be a real chef in a real restaurant even to interview to be a commis at French Laundry.

Place in bowl lined with paper toweling to absorb any extra grease.  Viola!
Why do you feel you need to cool the caramel first?
I have yet another suggestion. I worked in a Canadian based bakery franchise years ago (Tiffany's Bakeries) and our chocolate chip cookies were a main seller. The dough was rolled into 4" logs about 18" long then sliced every 2". The resulting dough would be pressed down with the palm of the hand. 15 would fit on a full size sheet pan. They bake 15-20 minutes at 500 degrees.... (we used bakery deck ovens that rotated. I could fit 3 pans on one deck and there was 5...
