He suffered for years with an inoperable brain aneurism. That's got to be a tough thing to live with.

Read that today. Didn't know that he never went to culinary school.

Many of these top notch American chefs did not go to culinary school, wish same could be said about lawyers.

Trotter's approach to learning should be the model for all who aspire to cook for a living. Get a bottom rung job at the best restaurant in your home town. Work your way up for a couple of years and make sure you actually want to do the job for a living. Then identify chefs around the country, if not the world, and start applying for bottom rung positions in their kitchens. Whenever you stop learning you move on.

Culinary school will not teach you anything you can't get paid to learn on the job. It's up to the individual candidate to push themselves in their career which often means moving and starting off lower than their last position in a lesser kitchen.

Or you could rack up 40k (and often much more) in loans just to get a $10-12 an hour job that you could have gotten with a year of experience in any halfway decent kitchen anywhere.

Thank god there is no "bar association" or licensing for chefs.

Sad story.
