Cooking school is expensive, but it's important. I can cook incredibly well for two or three people, but once I begin cooking for a large group I run into trouble. Cooking times that are fine for a project at home are not acceptable in a restaurant.

Let's take stake for example. I take a frying pan a little beer and some seasoning. I cook it on medium heat and end up with something incredibly tender and flavorful when I'm done. . . 45 minutes later. I never order steak at a restaurant. They don't have the time to get it right and I'm always disappointed.

If any of you watch Gordon Ramsay's kitchen nightmares you can see some of the troubles that the restaurant industry can face. Debt is epidemic, and making a more elaborate dish that might impress a customer is a losing bet. If you analyze economic trends you get even worse prospects. In communities where the economy is in decline you will get restaurants as a way to ride out the storm. Customers theoretically work in industry and will spend money over time in restaurants. Local restaurants keep the money in the community if they buy local produce and spend their money locally. This can (in theory) keep the money in the community with little outside influx.

In practice it is a stop gap measure that depends on new industries and new customers coming into the community. Big cities can handle a minor down turn and restaurants that last through economic storms tend to have staying power, but smaller communities have problems.

So I guess what I'm saying is get a loan, go to cooking school, and prepare to move to where you are able to get a job. Buy local foods where you can. Keep overhead low.

lets see, when i went for an interview at a restaurant about two weeks ago, the head chef gave me some very helpful advise about this. you see i found an ad for a cooking college but he had a chef that had attended one, unfortunately the time he spent at this college did not actually count towards his need hours. i was told it would be better just to stay in a commercial kitchen as an apprentice then get sent to a college through the kitchen, and with government aid it would only cost me $200.00 roughly for 2 years.
