Hey everyone. I'm a kitchen manager working in Chicago. I just left one job and I have a new one lined up to start in two weeks. I worked my way up in the last company from saute cook to assistant KM to KM. While I was here, I had all the freedom to order whatever I wanted and make whatever specials I wanted, but I really squandered that time and wasn't very creative. I really regret wasting that time, and now that I'm going to work in a new place, I want to be passionate and creative. I just don't know where to look for that.
So please, let me know what types of things you do to keep up with the industry, and stay creative and inspired.
