Look into being a personal chef! I think that's something where it would be easier to keep the hours down to something that was a bit more managable then being in the restaurant/catering business.

Luvs do you know what exactly a stylus does and what skills you need to be one?

How is school going by the way? Have you started yet or am I jumping the gun?

just saw your response to my msg. as i was going to get dinner. a stylist preps food for advertising, etc.
i'm not so very sure what goes into being a food stylist; just thinking, with your skill for cooking/photography, that seems to be something that you could look into.
school for me is next month, btw! thanks for asking!

Food brokers are the companies a lot or maybe most commerical kitchens/restaurants buy their foods, supplies. Different compaines provide various ranges of products and services. So I am sure certain brokers would have a good range of job opportunities. Some brokers hold classes for food safety, have marketing, sales, delivery and etc. Could get you into a lot of restaurants and networking with folks in the industry, while paying the bills and getting a feel of what might really be a fit for you.


Sysco would be one of the big companies, US Foods.
There could be some smaller, local companies in your area, and those may also specialize in one area, i.e. produce, meat, chicken, etc.
