Micro Blog: Something to Think About By Chef Antonio Alano
Professionalism and humility go a long way. It is the way that we carry ourselves in and out of our kitchens, whether it is at school, home, or at work. Sometimes being professional and humble are the qualities that allow us to reach that next promotion. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, professionalism is defined as the conduct, aims, or qualities that characterize or mark a profession or the skill, good judgment, and polite behavior that is expected from a person who is trained to do a job well. Humility is defined as the quality or state of not thinking you are better than other people, the quality or state of being humble, or not being too proud. Two simple words and philosophies that absolutely go hand in hand in the kitchens today,especially with all the exposure from the media and the internet. Being professional and humble become a way of life for restaurants and their employees.
