Jack’s Answer

Michael It looks like you have a good start. Your need step is probably a culinary school. I do not know much about the Scranton area but there are probably some community colleges that offer classes. If not then its a larger city. Private colleges can be very expensive so to save money you could look into an ACF apprentice program. Good cooking

Hi Michael! Chef Jack had a good answer and was on the right track. As for myself, I started out cooking and decided that was where my passion was so then did decide to attend Culinary School and that really kick started my career progression into management. Always great to have the culinary background and training, especially if you're going to make a career in Food, Beverage & Hospitality industry. I went to a private Culinary Institute but especially in your area of east coast, you should be able to find some options through Community Colleges and Art Institutes. Of course bigger cities such as Philly or NY will probably have the best options . . . and of course you're not too far from the grand daddy school Culinary Institute of America (in Hyde Park) but I'm sure that is really expensive but they may have some scholarship programs. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your time in the Culinary Industry!

Hi Michael ,

Enroll yourself to get a diploma course in culinary arts or hotel & hospitality management after your high school is recommended or 4 year High college degree or equivalent.
Being a Chef is a professional cook, trained in all aspects of food preparation. As a Chef, setting the food menu is just one aspect of the job. One has to be involved in the preparation of food, ensuring the restaurant kitchen is stocked with the necessary ingredients & also manage an entire kitchen staff and encourage them to work efficiently .

Below are some best Culinary/Pastry Schools :

Westminster Kingsway College, London, UK
The Culinary Institute of America
Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, USA
Institute of Culinary Education, New York, USA

All the Best Michael !
