Working in a kitchen for a weekend?

My friend is the sous chef at arguably the most upscale restaurant in Toronto. He knows I love food, and will do alot of crazy things for food, but I have almost no professional training whatsoever, but I do cook, I even beat him in a cooking throwdown once. Anyways, he offered me a position (unpaid) to work in his kitchen for the weekend; or almost any other kitchen in Toronto if I didn't want to work for him.

A part of me thinks it'll be fun, and a story to tell later. But at the same time, I wonder if I'll be dicing carrots all day, or cleaning out the oil. Also I am afraid with no training, I might embarass him, or even ruin someone's dinner.

Still, it sounds interesting. What do you think of the idea?
