I have always had a love and passion for baking. I am currently considering changing my career path to that of baking and the pastry arts. I understand that to work in a kitchen can be difficult - long hours, heavy lifting and the like. Before I jump in feet first and enroll in culinary school - is there a way I can get a hands on feel for the job? I have never worked in a professional kitchen/bakery before so I would like to see for myself that it is an environment I can handle. I have heard of doing a stage. Can anyone offer any advice on how someone such as myself with no professional experience could acquire such a position? I would be interested in putting in one week of work anywhere in the US. Preferably a large hotel.
