What does it take to become a chef?
Becoming a chef takes time, experience, and enthusiasm. Some jobs require formal training, most require practical experience and all will expect you to have or be willing to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitude needs to be successful.
You can learn ONLINE, in a classroom or in your own kitchen. Depending on your career ambitions and the time or funds you have available, you can develop your career watching videos, experimenting at home or in someone else’s kitchen, taking short or longer courses. Having a mentor or someone to apprentice with is a good way to develop your skills and confidence.
