What got you in to cooking and chef industry ?

My mum influenced me when I was younger as she was such a good cook at home. My first job also made my interest in becoming a chef even stronger, from working in a chippy I learned the basic skills  then working my up and learning new abilities to be able to work in a more established restaurant.
