More information

A chef does not need any formal training or specific education. However, there are culinary schools and culinary programs at colleges and universities that help aspiring chefs develop their skills. You have to have two years of training after high school. You make about $16.20 an hour and roughly $37,227 a year. Your responsibility's will vary depending on what you do. In my opinion the best part is cooking the food. The outlook may decrees. But it may increase as the population increases.
