Karen’s Answer

It’s not just making a delicious meal! It’s teaching your staff to follow your lead with safety, quality and excellent customer service. Purchased products and creating a menu with a budget, talking to Vendors, keep equipment clean and working properly and being organized. I love bringing ingredients together and presentation to offer to a person to enjoy!!

Frank’s Answer

Thanks for your question The most rewarding part of my job was that I got the apprenticeship as Baker and Flour Confectioner in a very large commercial food production business close to where i lived.

Every Wednesday my employer sent me to the local Catering College to learn my culinary skills with qualified professional trade teachers training chefs, bakers, pastrycooks and cake decorators.

My suggestion is that you study the following Hashtags ### on your computer and read the stories and make notes. culinary indentured_apprenticeship chef baker pastrycooks cake_decorators cooking jobshare travel.

Also go to your local public library and study culinary text books. Make sure you practice baking at home simple cakes and breads etc.,

Take photographs with you to show prospective employers that you are very keen and enthusiastic about being an apprentice. Ask if you can do a short trial? Try out the following optional steps:

Frank recommends the following next steps:

Practice cooking in your kitchen at home. Make copies of the recipes and take photographs.
Study all the above Hashtags #### and make notes. Get enthusiastic about the prospects of an indentured apprenticeship ?
Go to all your local culinary outlets (shops)and study the type of products they make. Is this the food style you are happy with?
Ask the business owner if they will give you a trial. Tell and show your prospective employer that you are very keen to become a professional Pastry Chef and Baker and Cake Decorator etc.
Best wishes & Good luck with your research. Please send feedback and comments about your job search and training program?

Sean’s Answer

The greatest thing about cooking professionally is the gratification you get when someone loves a dish and makes an effort to let you know. Some days it's something that makes all the hours and failures worth it Although plenty of times I went all out to make customers happy and they are indifferent You can't cook expecting to be complimented all the time, remember it's your job and you chose it . When you are recognized it is a morale booster for sure And always remember to share it with your team.. chances are they had something to do with it

Michael’s Answer

The best part of being a cook is making delicious food! Also- people who work in kitchens are generally laid back, you learn to work together/on a team, and you learn skills (cooking) that benefit you outside of work.

Thank you comment icon Very true Michael! Alyssa DePardo

Dada’s Answer

There's no one thing that makes being a chef a great career option, if you truly love what you do you will be successful.
Majority of Chefs learn by preparing and cooking all kinds of food, while some are happy to pursue that path. However, there's plenty of opportunity to specialize if you discover a burning passion for Indian , Mediterranean , Thai or just for savories & Pastries .
There are plenty of options to branch out and challenge yourself.
People who work in the restaurant industry face many challenges, including wages and long hours that make a healthy work-life balance impossible. Kitchens are often high-stress environments that can quickly cause burn out. While some people may thrive in the kitchen, there are opportunities for those who love cooking to make a living outside average culinary arts.
