Culinary Arts

Culinary Arts Career Pathway

Careers in Culinary Arts can be highly rewarding offering job opportunities in a variety of unique settings. Employment options include restaurants, hotels, hospitals, cruise ships, catering, private businesses, and just about anywhere food is prepared.

A career in Culinary Arts involves more than cooking. Many job opportunities exist in this field, from executive chefs to part-time food service workers. Chefs, cooks and food preparation workers prepare, season and cook a wide range of foods in a variety of restaurants and other food service establishments. Food service managers are responsible for the daily operations of restaurants and venues that prepare and serve meals to consumers. Executive chefs and head cooks who work in fine-dining restaurants require many years of training and experience. Many restaurant and food service management positions, particularly self-service and fast-food, are filled by promoting experienced food and beverage preparation and service workers. Job openings for chefs, cooks, food preparation workers and food service managers are expected to be plentiful through 2015.
