What would've been your second-choice career had you not chosen the food industry?

I asked myself this question last week for the first time, and it surprised me that I never really gave it  that much thought before. However, in the recesses of my mind I've always envied a position somewhere in the Art world..perhaps a curator, or the owner of an gallery.

I left Nursing school to follow my passion and work in a kitchen. Some say it's a stupid move but I wake up every morning exhausted and excited to go to work, it's wholly satisfying :)

The food game wasn't even in my top 5 choices before I started working, I just fell into it as I never got my shit together when I left school wink.gif no regrets though, I love my job.

 

Looking back at things now I would have to say MMA fighter, bushcraft/survival expert or smallholder all seem like they could be a laugh.
