“Plates for the table 3, ready!” “How man minutes for the table 5?” “Hurry up for the table 7!!”
Once, I worked as a kitchen chef and was really into it. I started from zero to having my own small dish in a Michelin star restaurant, and my kitchen experience became one of my life turning points.
Before becoming a chef, I had little knowledge and skills, and cooking was something beyond my reach just like any other skills about which you have no clue. After awhile, I was asked many times how I become a chef as if it was something very difficult. I felt like I was looking at myself before entering kitchen job. Cooking is such a mysterious area of work and attracts us.
Although learning how to cook needs time and practice, it’s not a rocket science, and you can learn quite a lot from zero, just like I did. And it deals not only with making delicious dishes, but also with organizing your way of thinking/doing, thus organizing life. In other words, cooking and life organizer are very much connected, and I learned many valuable life skills from cooking experience, about which I would like to share a bit in this entry.
