Ruben’s Answer

The field of cooking is vast and there is always going to be more to know and learn. First decide what kind of food you enjoy the most or what steps of cooking your drawn to. You may enjoy prepping food or making sure food is properly stored maybe even have a future in teppanyaki . What matters most is your focus on how far you want to go and the level of work it takes to get there. I have found the kitchen to be very rewarding and challenging it’s something very simple but not easy .

Swaroop’s Answer

Hello Francisca,

Its good to see that you're interested in the cooking field. There are no strict educational or training requirements to become a chef. For most, the knowledge and skills are simply gained during those long hours in the kitchen. You can start by becoming a budding home chef and then go on to sharpen your skill by signing up for apprenticeship programs in your country. Start small and find a job in a restaurant kitchen to find out how a kitchen works. With some relevant experience you can then apply to top hotels and live your culinary dream.

Good luck!

Amanda’s Answer

There are numerous opportunities for you to peruse if you are looking for a career in culinary arts.

We live in a time where the world is at our finger tips which also includes access to videos from chefs across the world.

Before you make the decision to peruse schooling or an apprenticeship I would suggest google searching "how to videos" that can help you learn skills from knife handling, spices, and kitchen terminology.

Once you master the basics try out a few recipes and use your family as taste testers.

If you still are passionate you could try your local community college to see if they offer courses or certification classes.

Good Luck Future Chef!
