Andrew Carmellini on the Kids These Days
Andrew Carmellini bemoans the change in mentality of young cooks in an interview with Gothamist:
I spoke at the CIA graduation a couple of years ago and had the opportunity to meet a lot of the graduates. I was asking everybody about their post-graduation plans and I was getting responses like, Oh, I’m going to be a food stylist, or a private chef, a food writer. I’m going to start a web something. It blew my mind, but not one person I talked with that day said I’m going to Chicago, or New York, to work for such and such great chef. Nobody. Not one.
