Why should I become a chef?

Why not? Salary income, no matter how many hours you get a week, you are guaranteed to get a set amount on your paycheck unlike hourly employees. Experience matters the most, work experience in this field is needed more than a fancy degree. School can give you insight of how a kitchen should work and how a chef should be, but does not necessarily mean school can prepare you for the work that needs to be done. The skills that you earn when you become a chef can be used in everyday life, being able to cook good meals for your family and friends to see smiles and enjoyment on their faces will bring a warmth to your heart. Becoming a chef is to devote your time to feed and entertain people who come to your establishment. To be able to make amazing food is a privilege to make people around you happy.
