I'm 24 and living in England. I currently work full time in Medical sales, I love my job and the money and benefits are fantastic.... however this is just not my passion. My passion is and always has been in food and cooking. Fortunately I have been in a position to save some money and build a good foundation in England that would now allow me to take that amazing/scary leap to start my new life doing what I love.
I love Italian cuisine and I love everything about Italy and this is where I would love to be..... one minor speed bump is the fact I don't speak Italian, however I would love to learn.
My absolute dream would be to move over to Italy, rent an apartment and start working in a kitchen learning everything from the very basics to the most advanced techniques (as mentioned I don't have any culinary qualifications or have I worked in a professional kitchen but I'm an extremely quick learner helped only by my passion and determination to make this my life). I would not expect to be paid a lot, just enough to get me by, as I've mentioned I have been fortunate enough to save a little that will help me until I am deemed qualified enough to then begin to earn more money.
Is this possible or am I just living in a dream world?
as you'll probably guess this would be a massive risk for me to give up a growing career in sales..... to follow my passion, however it's one I would do in a breath to live the life I have always dreamed of.
Thanks so much, I would love any feedback and thoughts on this!
