Chef

Requirements for a restaurant

What this career does.

A chef is a person who cooks and/or operates a/the kitchen

Why I chose this career

I chose to be a chef for a few reasons. The main one is because I like to cook. It would also be a good learning experience. I would learn to properly handle certain foods, and how to make many more foods.

Experience/Skills required

There is more experience required for a fancier restaurant than a lower quality one like Mc Donalds. You need to know the basics like proper food handling, sanitation, and have decent knife skills. These may vary depending on the job.

Education needed for career

To become a chef, you don't absolutely have to go to school. If you do, you probably become more successful. To be able to work for most medium class restaurants, you will need some experience at least, if you don't go to school for a culinary career.

What branch of science

I think a culinary career aka a chef, falls in the physical science category. It could also be in the life science category because they are dealing with beef and pork and chicken, which all comes from live animals.

What I found interesting

There were many things I found interesting. One was the fact that not one chef entirely cooks every dish. There are stations to distribute the work among everyone. There are also different "ranks" of chefs. Here is a chart I found
