"The reality of the kitchen is that the hours suck, the work is brutal and physical, and your supervisor is never going to be happy with you. To be good, you have to practice perfectly and be extremely disciplined. That does not mean going to school, I get so many kids who went to CIA, ICE, FCI, and they don't last because they don't want to work physically. You have to be willing to make a lot of sacrifices."
