It's been over a year since I was chef in my own kitchen. Currently I am a line cook while I and my partner get our place up and running. I chose to take a line cooking job over a chef position because I wanted to keep focused on opening our restaurant. All of this to say I miss being the chef. In my current job there is not much creativity. Even though I am cooking there is no sense of ownership in the food I cook. The food is not mine and it is here I am struggling. I understand that put myself into this position and that in a few months I'll be back in charge of my own gig but until that time comes I'll find myself depressed.
