How to Make Blue Butterfly Roselle Yoghurt?
"I AM A NURSE BUT I WANT TO BE A CHEF!"
Career change after many years of working in a a stable high paying job is often difficult and emotional - to changeover, to start all over again……. and that job … a nurse – to make that change to pattieserie is often a hard decision – let’s see what’s out there…
Question - I am a nurse, but I want to be a chef! - i'm definitely a food enthusiast. i find it hard pursuing my dreams because i'm already a registered nurse, and people expect me to work as a nurse. but i would really like to go in culinary school and be a chef. its so hard, its too expensive now entering culinary school. they say 80percent of your life would be spent working, so might as well do something your passionate about. geezz..any tips? im new here!
From The Forum on Google: To all professional pastry chefs, basically, is it worth it? I really want to be a pastry chef but the salary worries me a lot. Is it worth it to you to work long shifts every day, on holidays, for low pay because you are passionate about it? Or would it be smarter for me to keep my baking as a hobby and go for a different career, like a nurse? I'm very passionate about the pastry arts, and I have been all my life. I create my own recipes, have worked with all kinds of italian and french pastries, cake decorating etc. I'm only 15 but I do have to start thinking about college and careers. I dream of being a pastry chef, but my family and friends tell me that i'm going to regret it and it would be smarter to get a job as a nurse or teacher and keep this passion as a hobby. Help??
My two cents – BY FIREWALL “I worked a career once with great benefits, good pay, room for advancement and co-workers I really liked. The only problem, I didn't enjoy the work and after pushing myself to stick with it for years, I felt trapped. That was no way for me to live. Everyone's priorities are different and people with families to care for sometimes can't take the risks they might want to. But for me at least, changing my career to the culinary world was the best thing I could have done. I love my work, it's exciting and challenging and most importantly it makes me happy.”
ADVISE - CREMDEDELACREME “It all depends on how far you are willing to go.... if you are that passionate then follow your dreams i live in the UK and if you work in the UK or EUROPE as a pastry chef then you are the most highest paid because pastry is a skilled job...not that cooking isnt but cooking is an art pastry is a science....”
