Culinary Arts Training

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

For all aspiring chefs it is important to receive formal culinary arts training. This training is based around theory and practical courses in the cooking and preparation of food to a restaurant standard. Some cooking schools will offer degrees in this area while others will offer a different type of qualification. The type of course you choose will depend on how far you want to go in the industry and what type of job you want (for example head chef, pastry chef or assistant chef).

Depending on the school you choose training will be provided by professional chefs that actually work, or have worked, in some of the top restaurants in the world. They will demonstrate their culinary craft to you and then train you to make the same dishes in the next lesson. Becoming a professional chef is not for the faint of heart though as these same instructors will then assess your food and presentation! For many people it can be hard to hear that their food or presentation is not up to scratch. If this sounds like it might be a problem it would be beneficial to take some beginners cooking classes before enrolling to gain some confidence.

As there are many cooking schools to choose from it is a good idea to compare the different curriculum that each school follows. This way you can be sure that the classes you choose will prepare you best for your future job in the food industry. Ask a career guidance counselor, your friends, a chef and even do some research on the Internet before deciding which class to take.
