“You always have to start from the bottom and work your way up. As a cook, you start as a student, then an intern, then cook, then you move to chef de partie to sous chef, and so on. Every time you move up, do not get discouraged by the challenges you face. Keep pushing hard, keep doing the things that made you a good cook. „
