Megan’s Answer

First of all, great question. The above answers are great as well. Do you cook at home? Try some little recipes here and there, nothing that will break the bank, but you can get a taste for what you enjoy. If you have the ability to go eat at some local restaurants, see what’s out there and what cuisine you’re drawn to, or style you like, or maybe the service was just really good. Heck, just ask people where they’re favorite place to eat is, and why. Understand that the hours will be long and stressful, BUT, also understand that people always need to eat food. A simple line cook job could take you into a career in hospitality that is expanding every day. Know you’re worth and what you have to offer.
