The culinary arts provide a difficult life style.
SENIOR SOUS CHEF, Olney, MD - December 16, 2013
Typically a day of work involves preparing traditional American food from cleaning whole fish to working on the line. Other days involve working in the front of the house where I have learned customer service orientation and providing an elegant setting to enjoy a meal. I have always been able to work well with others and have built strong professional relationships. the hardest part of the job is the work schedule, your literally working when everyone is not. Holidays, weekends, and nights, this can make it difficult for some to develop personal relationships and spend time with family. The most enjoyable part of the job is the knowledge of food and wine that I have obtained over the years. I now posses the ability to create a technical dish from scratch implementing my own ideas and the ability to pair these foods with wines.
