He who knows what he dosen't know, knows.
After 25 years in the food industry I have done everything from cleaning the warehouse to cutting the fish to loading the trucks, to driving the trucks to selling the products inside and out to purchasing the products localliy and internationally. I've trained chefs, wait staff and other food professionals on various aspects of the industry while always taking "an hour a day" for me to learn something within my industry.
Passion is the driving force in the food industry and if someone doesn't understand that, they need to find a new job.
