The culinary arts is a great career field. Is it right for you?
Have you ever thought about becoming a professional chef and working at a fancy restaurant, hotel or bakery? If you have, you can get the training you need to get started at one of these great jobs by enrolling at a local culinary school.
These established cooking schools have the experience, professional instructors and resources to teach you the skills necessary to become a chef, baker or caterer.
And if you see yourself managing a restaurant or nightclub rather than working in the kitchen, several schools also offer programs in restaurant or hospitality management.
Classes are usually taught by respected, industry-trained and currently working chefs. And they are offered in commercial industry-standard kitchens.
Some of the typical class subjects include general culinary skills, grilling, baking, pastry making, garnishing, menu planning, kitchen etiquette, catering, business operations and management.
Other than a few schools that offer a four-year Bachelor Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, most programs can be completed in well under two years.
Many schools have internships where you can get real-world experience, plus most have personalized career placement assistance for you as you graduate.
