Lenard’s Answer

I always loved cooking. I knew I wanted to be working in the food industry so I worked hard and saved money and went to a culinary school. I figured since I was paying for my education that I would study hard and get good grades. After graduating with honors I started out making $8 dollars an hour as a line cook in Anaheim for a restaurant located on the Disneyland property. Although it was very hard work for little pay I loved it and I still love cooking to this day. I have worked my may up and am now a Director of Culinary Research and Development. Kind of lofty title but I am still just a cook making food. I have never doubted my decision and choices and feel very lucky to be able to do something I love for a living.

You have to be ready to sacrifice a lot of personal time. The food industry is so rewarding but also very very VERY time consuming. You have to really love people and have a passion and drive for food to be a part of the culinary industry. You’ll never work a day in your life if you love food and people.

Thanks for the answer! Rachel C.
