Culinary Arts Career Information

As more Americans eat out more often, a career in culinary arts holds more challenges and opportunities than ever. Even better, our fascination with food means that you no longer have to attend the Cordon Bleu to gain the skills you’ll need for an exciting culinary job, like these:

Executive Chef

With superstar chefs like Emeril Lagasse and Gordon Ramsey stomping around on television, culinary schools are attracting the next generation of innovative food experts. Even if you don’t land your own television school, running a kitchen requires a host of targeted skills. Culinary school can prepare you for the rigors of creating menus that critics will love, while keeping line cooks happy and restaurant owners in the black.

Casual Dining Cook

If you’re already working in a kitchen, some extra courses at a culinary school can boost your career. With neighborhood bistros and chain restaurants opening at record pace, you can land a stable culinary job that doesn’t require you to reinvent the menu every week. A combination of culinary expertise and leadership skills can open up tremendous career opportunities.

Assisted Living Nutrition Director

The Bureau of Labor Statistics picks this culinary arts specialty as one of the fastest growing food-related jobs in the country. Record numbers of retirees demand quality experiences, resulting in nursing homes that feel more like golf resorts. Therefore, assisted living facilities have abandoned traditional cafeterias for in-house, four-star quality restaurants. These kitchens require chefs that understand the flair of the finest restaurants, while accommodating the dietary needs of the guests.
