I have been working as a line cook for 7 years at various resturants but for the past 6 I have only been cooking for a paycheck not for the love of the art. I finally got a job that is 1 tier above you typical cooperate resturant. You actually cook the food to order! I am grossly obsessed with cooking now. The history, the culture, the science, the tools of the trade, the creativity and the satisfaction of putting together a dish that was once just a thought in my mind is soothing to the soul.
I asked a retired chef what i need to change about the way i work and he said " Mark, you gotta be all over it!"
What are some things i can practice at work to really improve myself?
The question sounds a bit dumb but I need to know to become better at what i do.
