Would you consider being an apprentice hard?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, would you? I'm asking everyone, home cooks, head chef, and people who are currently studying.

Personally, I find it a hard job, but having the passion makes it easier. Has anyone ever told you you're useless as an apprentice? Not by a chef, but by someone who dj's for a living.

A DJ calling an apprentice chef useless???  That's like the pot making fun of the kettle!!!  If you work hard, apply yourself and above all pay attention to your chef you can succeed.  It's not an easy career choice and you need a thicker skin than other trades, but if you have a passion you can survive.

A 'prenti may be a relatively minor cog in the machine, but is still a cog.  That's why they make the small bucks. 

 

The point of apprenticeship is not only to be of some utility in the kitchen by producing mountains of mirepoix, but to learn to be of greater utility down the road.
