Have you tried talking to your chef about feeling at a dead-end? If you let him/her know that you'd like to learn more, and be more valuable to the restaurant, it might be taken very well. Of course, you might have to offer to come in on your own time to trail with the pastry chef -- but it would definitely be worth it both to you and to them. Never be afraid to speak up in a positive way! You have absolutely nothing to lose, and the world to gain.
As for "great minds" -- well, yes, there's Cape Chef, and Pete, and Athenaeus, and Mezzaluna, and Marmalady, and... and ... ! Oh, and MBrown, and Panini, and Momoreg, and W.Debord, and ... and ...! And just about EVERYONE ELSE, whether I mentioned them by name or not. I am so thrilled to be a part of this group -- great people who all have something good to share, and the desire to share it, and to learn from each other.
