So you want to become a chef?

Simple though it may seem, but becoming a chef is not a piece of cake. Cooking is an art that requires culinary and people skills, a willingness to explore and the tenacity to stay the course and perform in highly stressful situations.

It starts with being a cook and working under a chef until you՚re ready to take charge of the whole kitchen. ‘Cooking is an amazing journey. It is like studying medicine. It takes ten to fifteen years to learn’ says celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. For this reason, patience and perseverance are the key ingredients, when both cooking a dish, and making a career in the food industry.
