Harrison Hennick says that he started cooking out of both necessity and interest. He explains that he didn't come from a family with strong cooks, so he realized that if he wanted to eat good food, he'd have to learn to cook for himself.
Hennick adds that he started out learning to cook by watching the Food Network and various Youtube channels and following along with the recipes. He points out, "I’d been in music my whole life, but along with some of my friends that I’d cooked for, I’d made the realization that, 'Hey! You’re pretty good at this. Maybe you should consider it seriously!' "
Once he'd decided to move down the culinary path, Hennick says that he applied at various restaurants but he hadn't been to culinary school and lacked cooking experience, so he struggled to find a job. Eventually he was hired on at a small pub where he says that he enjoyed the atmosphere of the kitchen but didn't find the food that he cooked there stimulating.
Eventually he applied for a job at Chef Lorenzo Loseto's George restaurant and worked there for three and a half years.
