Irish Times asks “where did all the chefs go?”

Here is a really interesting analysis of an Irish Times article about a recruitment crisis in the Irish food service industry. This was written by a former coworker of mine who now works in the recruitment industry.
It is really quite surprising how the Irish while in the midst of a major recession is having a crisis in it's biggest industry.

My favorite take away from the piece

"As caterers, and as catering recruiters, we need to attract to the hospitality industry not just the would-be bricklayers and HGV drivers but also the would-be graphic designers, web designers and any number of other new professions battling it out with the catering and hospitality industry for the hearts and minds of school leavers."
