I'm a young line cook with no formal training, but over the past year and a half have had the amazing opportunity to work at a local country club in DFW. Over the time co workers have cycled in and out and there have been the constants as with any job, but from everyone I have been able to learn or take something from my time with them(even if they only showed me habits and or attitudes that I don't want to portray myself). But I find myself looking to just meet more chefs, not for current employment opportunities but I could only hope my interest in learning anything and everything could leave an imprint in someones memory when they just need a set of hands? But for now, I really seek the chance to just hear about experiences and lessons learned in the kitchen. Techniques and tricks of the trade obviously are always appreciated as well. Does anyone have any suggestions on ways of doing so? Regular gatherings of local chefs that may be in busy metroplex areas, and if I'm going to do so is it worth while making a basic business card to hand out contact info even with my little amount of experience?
