    Hardships, communication, and balance in the kitchen

    Great food and serving others make cooking such a valuable skill, and multi-tasking is a must. Anyone who thinks it is easy you watch too much Masterchef and are in love with the art, not the process; there is a massive difference between the realities of tv and real life in a commercial kitchen.

    Cooking and the cost of art

    It's early Monday morning, birds are chirping, and the fog is in the air as I make my way to the restaurant to start my first shift in a commercial kitchen. I wait in the car park nervously before entering fresh out of high school; the idea of working is an intimidating experience. I walk into the pub. The smell of beer lingers in the air as if it is a permanent part of the air. I walk to the kitchen and introduce myself to the chefs, hoping that they won't be too scary or mean.
