Transcript of Career Presentation: Chef

Career Presentation
Job Description
The work of a chef is more than just cooking food in a restaurant: it's the combining of tastes, it's presenting the food as the work of art it is,
it's complementing flavors and drinks to offer the best dining experience possible, it's adding that one sprig of mint to bring it to the next level. That is the job of a chef.
You usually think of chefs working in restaurants and hotels but there are many other options:

catering companies
film sets
television studios
your own house
self employment

It is often hot, humid and hectic in kitchens. Stress from heat or pressure can occur; a chef is also lifting heavy pots and pans that can cause other problems. On the other you have the joy of working hard on something, then having someone enjoy it.
Working Conditions
The average is between $30000-$36000 a year
But you can be payed anything between minimum wage and $75000
some business owners gain more
There are many college options for training in this field. Courses that are available are: culinary skills and chef training at Algonquin College, cake design at Confederation College and professional chocolatier at George Brown College.You can take courses like advanced wines and beverage management that are post diploma. But most of all, experience is the greatest factor in your career. University courses can help your chef career but are less important than other options.
There are many different types of apprenticeships in this field. The most common type is chef training or cook apprenticeship. This is a three-year apprenticeship program which combines on-the-job experience with classes to learn the theory based part of cooking. Apprenticeships abroad are also helpful because you then acquire knowledge of other countries' food.
