We decided long ago to encourage our kids when they find something they like.
Two of my boys like to cook. They have a knack for it too.
However, there is a dilemma with this choice. There are many friends of mine who took up a career as a chef. They all had dreams of owning their own business or being head chef at a prestigious restaurant.
Instead they have trouble finding work, struggle through the off season, or worse. Many kitchens have drug problems, drinking problems and worse.
They’re kids. They like to cook. Just cook with them.
