Hi my name is pat, I'm 21 and I'm currently enrolled at Johnson and wales. I love food and cooking. I just recently got a job in a kitchen as a prep cook and dishwasher, and they want to promote me to line cook asap cause of some people leaving. I'm looking for some advise about becoming a line cook and somethings i should know about the job. My cooking is pretty solid and my knife cuts are alright but i haven't had to work at that kind of fast pace. so any advise for a fresh student getting tossed in the fire or just a hello would be nice I'll post my question in the other forums later I'm excited about the job and about joining the forums. hope to hear from you all :)
