(Continued from yesterday’s post)
This is what’s true for those of us who, through our own lives, are redefining what it means to be a chef: that we currently don’t have a blueprint for it. So we have to carve a path for ourselves. Tentatively putting one foot in front of the other, at times jumping through hoops in order to honour both our work and our lives outside it. This is where Love Letters to Chefs is here to support you.
But this is also true: that although we might currently be a minority, one day enough of us will recognise that being true to ourselves is key to being a better chef.
And as our individual steps and choices gather momentum, the restaurant industry will change.
