Congratulations on your new job. This can be very rewarding for you and the residents. I had many years experience managing a nursing home kitchen before I moved over to the paperwork side of the job, nutritional assessments of the residents. Most cooks there start with no experience but inservices and training are quite rigorous. Yes, it is the passion for the love of cooking that will help you. This will be a challange that I hope you will enjoy. Stick with it, the cooks job has a lot of responsibility and you can blossom with the job. There is a lot to learn concerning local, state and federal rules and regulations, but the job can be a blast, especially if your coworkers are hard workers like yourself. This could be the perfect job for you, so glad you were hired!!
