Recipe Developer
There isn't many benefits to being a recipe developer. You can be credited to dishes, and cuisines invented by you.
A recipe developer can make up to $56K
Typical schedule
Recipe developers may start their career in the kitchen of a restaurant where they receive hands-on training. Their career may progress to developing new recipes for the restaurant or they may be hired by a commercial company to test recipes and then develop new ones. Some recipe developers work in test kitchens of magazines, cooking shows, etc. They may work as a freelance developer as well.
Education needed
Seek an Associate's degree from a local culinary institute to gain exposure to different foods. Most institutes require students to take courses involving the history, culture and ingredients of foods from different regions. You can take electives on pastries, Italian food and dozens of other topics to help you find your niche.
