My name is Michael, and I have just started an apprenticeship as a chef here in Perth, WA.
I work in a small Mexican restaurant that is currently talk of the town :P I was originally a bartender, but I worked the Dishpit in the kitchen for 2 weeks whilst they found staff. The Head chef at the time was worn out from all the questions I kept asking (Why are you adding the oil in to the mayonaise while its blending? Why has the fish in the Cervice turned white?), and offered me the apprenticeship. He since left and I am studying under a fantastic chef with experience in fine dining.
So here I am, to make new friends, to learn new things and to talk to like minded people!
