Aloha. I'm new to this site, but not new to the culinary field. I have worked in many kitchens since I first started in 95. Along the way I had my reasons for not going to school, like 5 kids. Now I'm 45 and starting school in April, not worried and willing to add to the skills I picked up in real life work. I can move fast without using wasting too much motion. I won't listen to people holding me down.
Never to old. I to have begun my pursuit in the culinary field. I went back to school this year and I just turned 50. My first career was in the healthcare field.
while this thread started 4 years ago I have you beat I started school at 51yrs old and while I'm old enough to be a parent to my class mates and some of my instructors I get nothing but support and encouragement from them. my current employer hired me over other applicants because older employees have a well established work ethic
