The other day a friend asked me why I was not a professional chef since I love cooking. I love cooking, but those I know who aspire to be part of the culinary world professionally, live, eat and sleep food and that I do not do. I love cooking for friends because I love my friends and family, but I do not have visions of plates and how food is arranged on them. It is not something I dream about, feel that passionate about, or feel called to do.
On the other hand, I love being an Independent Consultant for Pampered Chef. It provides me with opportunities to interact with people and have made some great friendships because of it. No longer being able to freely leave my house has limited my ability to do so, so Pampered Chef has been my lifeline. It has also been a way for me to earn an additional stream of income and who can’t use a side gig that comes with flexible hours. I also get to share what I have come to learn about cooking with others. So I get to do mini culinary instruction, but only because of all the amazing skills I have learned from Pampered Chef.
