I'm not asking to be coddled - just to be treated as a fellow human & given a fair shot.
On another board where there are a number of folk who are formally trained and have worked in kitchens, what Robo said and the manner of saying it is not far off the mark.
You really might want to watch "some of those shows". There is a good bit of stress level and expectations are high.

Edited to say I had not read the dates nor the rest of the thread. What I suggested is still true, I believe, but others have also said it.

I got a job cooking in a nursing home. This is what I want to do. Cook for about 100 people at a time, at my own pace. And I'm allowed to do my own thing - I don't have to follow a set recipe.

I'm all about the food!
