I Am A Private Chef Who Works For A Multi-Millionaire. AMA
By request, I am doing an AMA. Some background: I have worked in the food service industry all my life. I've been a dishwasher, busboy, waiter, and bartender, and I've worked every position in a kitchen. I worked for years in a James Beard award-winning restaurant. I don't have a culinary degree, but I have trained lots of CIA interns. I quit working in restaurant kitchens fifteen years ago due to health reasons.
I have been working for my employer for twelve years now. He made his money by creating a stock brokerage from the ground up. Now he has sold his company and is retired, but he is still highly respected in the investment community.
My employers own houses in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and on a tiny private island in Florida. They travel seasonally, spending summers in New Hampshire, Winters in Florida, and the rest in Pennsylvania. They are wonderful, down to earth people. I wish to protect their privacy, so please excuse me if I am vague on some details here. Also, please excuse slowness of response, as I am a terrible typist!
Edit: Okay, wow, this is taking off fast! There is no way I can type fast enough to answer all your questions. I'll keep trying the best I can, though!
Second edit: Okay guys, I'm stunned by all the response, but it's been seven hours now and my fingers feel like they are going to fall off. I had no idea that people would find this so interesting. I'm going to take a break to watch the Cowboys/Eagles game, and will be back on in a few hours to answer more questions. Thank you all for being so nice!
