I'm 31 years old and like my status says I basically can't boil water.
I have a huge interest to start working in the food industry. Like fromage said in his post from 11 years ago ;) (wonder how he's doing btw)
I've considered the paycut, the hours, the peer pressure and the change of life style. And still I would love to become a Chef.
I dont mind delivering hard work and long days and studying my ass off for it. But my age and inexperience makes me insecure.
I just dont know where to start
I've worked on IT call centers basically all my life.
But it makes me really unhappy because I don't have any love or passion for what I'm doing.
I used to love the IT business when I was a kid, but times change, the industry changed and nowadays it basically the most
unsatisfying job ever.
How does somebody start becoming a Chef at 31. Because I can't imagine there would be a restaurant that would hire me for training.
Can you guys give me some pointers where I should start.
Do I first need to go to school and graduate ?
or should I first change jobs and get experience in a restaurant and work my way up from there ?
What kind of restaurants or place would you advice me to work in to learn ?
Should I first learn all the basics like boiling water ? ;)
Any advice on this will be very much appreciated.
