just a little thing that most folks in this feild already know. for all of you folks just starting up be prepared this is a dog eat dog buisness full of compitition and back stabbing. if you are as passionate about this buisness as i am i am here to tell you.... work hard, when you think you have reached 110% give 110% more. be prepared for critisism and embrace it. never let someones opinion dishearten you. always give your absolute best even when your tired and hungover go that extra mile. if you have a love for food like me this will be the easy part. be prepared for a life of constant contridiction, loneliness, and self sacrifice. but remember its not the money, the fame that some of us get or the adoring crowds of "foodies" its the simple pleasure of knowing that you have put your heart and soul, and poured every bit of passion the you are able to relenquish into something that is ultimately "art bound for distruction". i just want to let all of those who follow the path i have chosen that michealangelo has a siteene chapple that will be imortilized for ever (or at least how long it stands) my lifes work and all the passion i have was just divoured by a hungry guest... :chef: WHATEVER YOU DO DONT LOOSE THE PASSION YOU STARTED WITH!!!!!!!! Keep that fire burning in your soul through all of the hard times and long nights. Keep the passion for food burning cause if you dont who will want to follow in your footsteps?
i pledge my professional knowladge and skill to the advancement of our profession and to pass it on to those that are to follow..... ACF pledge
