It's definitely possible to obtain work in the kitchen w/o any prior experience.

Beyond "trailing", which is usually more of an observational role, you can offer to "stage", which is work for free, to get your foot in the door. This is actually what I did:

1) I found out the best restaurant that I wanted to work at.
2) Asked to meet the chef (after the lunch service and before dinner service).
3) And asked if there were any opportunities to stage for him.

After a brief "stage", I was offered a salaried position! :D

Good luck!
