  • It’s stressful working in a kitchen? Last updated by Sam: 26-Sep-2016

    I've always loved cooking and I’d like working with stoves, food and kitchen aprons. It’s very stressful? It is clear that all jobs have some degree of stress. But I have the idea that this should be too much ... What do you say?

    • Restaurants and their kitchens are very stressful places. People go there and pay money to be served and give themselves a treat, and on most occasions they're very demanding. I have worked in 2 different kitchens, plenty of stress there, but you get a feel good sensation when all your plates turn out well and dinner guests walk away satisfied. personally I find it worthwhile.
