Been a few years since I posted. I did a year in culinary school but had to drop out because I needed full time work to pay bills. At the time I dropped out I was working a stage for a few weeks at a local french restaurant. This was maybe 4 years ago. I'm now a little older but for the past few years have been doing work outside of culinary. I now find myself laid off and looking for a new job.
I want to get into a kitchen. I've noticed during my time off my passion for cooking is still there, despite my limited skills. I can't simply afford to go back to culinary school because i need full time hours.
So my question is, how do I convince someone to give me a shot and take me under their wing as a prep cook? I'm eager to learn, and brush up on the limited skills I did learn. I have the drive to want to grow, but I don't know how to get a shot to do it.
