Anyone involved in Catering/ Hospitality etc
Cheffie Wrote:Sterretjie

I admire anyone that has the fortitude to actually go and wait on tables, be involved in restaurants or hotels and has the guts to say they loved it!

It's a passion of mine and see no ill in being able to serve people something that they view as magical.

If you're really that homesick for the industry.. I guess Switzerland should be looked into for the better paying areas of employment (so I'm led to believe).

The life you tend to lead is not one that can be considered "normal" by most people.. but to those of us in the industry.. it's perfectly acceptable with job satisfaction a huge plus.

I guess the better you are at your job, the more rewarding it will be in terms of finance etc..

Personally having met you (albeit briefly) I think you'd do extremely well on the F.O.H. side - it's a pity that there aren't that many people out there who are willing to make a go of it and do thewhole career thing.
Sure.. you might start as a waitress.. yet one day end up the proud owner of a chain of boutique hotels..

Everything is possible.. think about it Wink

Living in Switzerland I can confirm that the hotel industry or Gastro proffesion is still looked upon as exactly that... a proffesion, although the recent relaxation of gastro licences has brought in some loosening of this. However weighing up the pro/cons a restaurant still has to provide three important ingredients namely good food, good servcie and good ambience or appareance or presetnation,and consistently.

Switzerland is great for the CV, the hotel industry FOH or BOH pays lousy. Perk working for a chain is you get to see the world and meet interesting people. Upper management is great andf the pay improved significantly, how did I end up here...pure luck and a passion for thehotel industry.
