Culinary School: Mandatory For Chefs?

[ 0 ] Jul. 31, 2012 | SBO Editor

Congrats to Avery Pursell, winning chef on the debut season of Bravo’s ‘Around The World In 80 Plates.’

There are few formal educational requirements for cooks and chefs since you can qualify for most jobs in this field through on-the-job training. That means that you do not have to earn a cooking certificate or degree in order to work in this field. However, if you do not attend college for cooking, you can expect to spend several years in lower-level positions in the kitchen before you gain the knowledge and skills that are necessary to become a head cook or chef. And since cooks and chefs must develop hands-on food preparation skills, you should not plan to earn your cooking degree online if you choose to pursue a cooking degree.
