“In 1977 I was in my seventh year of college for liberal arts and still hadn’t graduated! I decided to take a semester off, got a job as the salad bar prep guy in a local restaurant. After two weeks I knew the kitchen was my place. I never finished college.” –Don Dickman, chef at Silver Lake’s Barbrix, on the decision to drop-out of college to start his career cooking.
