Like others, I love knife work. I'm always trying to be faster and more accurate with my cuts. Being in meat processing industry helps me w/ that also. I also like cleaning up while I work. There's nothing that bothers me more than a messy kitchen. I also really like doing meat fabrication. I was fortunate enough to have a 3rd generation master butcher from england as an instructor, and he's taught me so much about meat that butchering has become a second love alongside my love for culinary arts.
On the back side, I'm not really one for baking. Breads interest me, but I'm not really keen on preparing desserts. I much rather be over a range than in front of an oven. I also don't like doing canapes. Just too tedious.
Even though I may dislike a task in the kitchen, I know it's all just a part of the job. It's something that has to be done, even if I don't like it, the faster I get it done, the sooner I'll be done with it. But I'm more than willing to do any of it when someone tells me that they really enjoyed something I prepared. That's what makes me want to get back in the kitchen every day.
