Learning From Restaurant Work?

schoenfelderp | Dec 26, 2010 06:14 PM

I'm a college student and for the past year I've gotten very into cooking. I don't know if restaurants look for this type of thing, but would there be a need for someone to come and do prep work once or twice a week at a restaurant (maybe the weekends when its busier?)? I look at it as a learning experience, practicing knife skills, learning how to prep new items I've never worked with before, how a professional kitchen works, maybe even catch some tips from the chefs. I have no problem doing the dirty work as long as I'm learning something while I'm doing it.

Keeping in mind that I have no desire to make this a career, but would love to grow as a cook, would it be worth my time to look for something like this?
