Cheffing is a rewarding career if you put the effort in, work hard and make the right decisions. If you want to make a success out of it, go to the top places from the start. Don't take the easy route by choosing easy kitchens to work in. It will be hard for many years but what you gain will be well worth it. Travel plays a big part in one's growth as a chef and cooking is an international passport to visit exotic and exciting countries. A chef can work anywhere and adapt to any kitchen.
