following recipes is a great skill that some just can't do.
I used to train people how to take machines apart and repair them in a can factory.
The instructions would be right in front us and some people would right away start doing things out of order.
Cooking is great training for this !
It was a new factory an I was told they hired as many people as they could from the restaurant industry because of the fast and logical thinking that one gets from working in a restaurant.
