just spotted the terrible typo in the thread title, hopefully corrected now
I'm enjoying the series so far, the usual mixed bag of decent cooks, one's with potential and those who aren't as good as they think they are.
I'm not keen on tattoos but would rather them thank the ear plugs!
I know a guy who is now a senior catering lecturer, I think, like him, most them worked in professional kitchens before going into the teaching background and they are certainly expected to know their stuff across all the sections. He previously was a senior chef a local high end hotel but wanted away from the hours and weekend working rather than away from cooking. Lecturing was ideal in this respect.
