21 Problems/Blessings Of Being A Chef

  1. You can’t stand watching someone use the wrong knife for the wrong use
  2. You can’t stand someone touching your knives without permission
  3. In fact, you develop a creepy obsession with your knives that no one outside the culinary industry will understand.
  4. If you’re a pastry chef, the same creepy obsession goes for your spoons
  5. Smelling like food…all the time
  6. Yelling “Behind!” …in the supermarket 
  7. The infamous plastic wrap/foil edge cut
  8. Not getting invited to any special occasions or events because you haven’t been able to make one in five years. 
  9. Having the ability to grab hot objects mere mortals could not even imagine 
  10. Friends thinking you got in a fight after looking at your hands when it was really just a “fight” with the microplane 
  11. Your awareness of someone’s lack of efficiency increasing and tolerance decreasing 
  12. No one cooking for you because they feel embarrassed
  13. Which in turn leads to you having to cook for every family gathering (if you can make it!)
  14. When you don’t realize how loud it is in the kitchen until and hour after your clock out and your ears are still ringing
  15. Working in a cave all day aka no windows or natural light
  16. When the ticket printer stops working halfway through the first rush
  17. Trying to describe “quenelles” to someone
  18. Running out of centrefeed. It’s the kitchen’s lifeblood
  19. That jungle rash developed from the humid kitchen. (Where’s the cornstarch?)
  20. The fact that you are given more work because by reading this you have too much time on your hands
  21. The fact that after accepting all of this you still will never trade your job for anything in the world! #chefsareawesome


Mistakes, learn from them, don’t regret them, be grateful that you experienced them because you are now a lot wiser because of them.

Mistakes, listen to individuals regrets and consider them a note of knowledge so you won’t take the same path.

Mistakes, are not meant to be dwelled upon, because…

" Life will throw you down, and sadly you may fall and whats even more sad, maybe no one would care, but thats when you have to accept the fact, its all you, and the only person you should be depending on to care and to help you is yourself . "

" Someone once asked me, ”what are 3 good reasons to give up?”
and I told them that, I cannot think of 3, I can only think of one. If you are giving up, you can only give up if the activity you are giving up on is hindering the bigger scope of your main goal. "

What is plating ?

Plating is simply the way you place food to best appeal to the eye of your, customers, clients , or audience. 

Everyone has their own unique design to be honest. This usually leads in conflicts, thus most high end restaurants have a picture of how the plate should look before it leaves the kitchen and reaches the dinning table.

Plating, like most things in life is dictated by society. The more people that like your design , the more,”correct,” it is.

Honestly, I believe, you should let your imagination run wild on the plate, consider the plate your canvass and the food your devices that draw your story.

" Practicality over methodology "


" I know I have said this before, do not fear failure, but I will say it again and add, do not, keep the company of people who are willing to remind of it, THEY ARE USELESS TO YOUR GROWTH … STRIVE.! "
