Advice For Chefs

CrybabyChef-175.jpgAmanda Cohen, chef of New York City's Dirt Candy, has some advice on how to become a chef: "Don't." But if you must, "Immerse yourself in this world and it will teach you everything you need to know through scars, bruises, friendships, and burns. The first year of this job is the hardest, but don't cheat, don't take shortcuts, and if you make it through you're going to be a different person." [Dirt Candy]
