Culinary Schools

Many of the country's top chefs became successful without a cooking degree, but most agree that earning a culinary degree is the best way to kick off a stellar cooking career. So, though you may be a natural-born chef, you could probably benefit from a little fine-tuning. Attending cooking school gives you the opportunity to gain an immense amount of information in a concentrated period of time, and the diploma you earn can help open doors.

Deciding to attend cooking school is obviously a personal decision and where you choose to attend is dependent on several factors, most of which have everything to do with your unique situation. How long you want to be in school, how much you can afford to pay, and whether or not you want to specialize in a specific area are all things to consider when choosing a school.

Make contact
As with any important decision, you need to start by gathering information, and the best way to do that is by contacting schools directly, either in person or over the phone. If you're not sure about which schools to look into, you may want to consider asking chefs in your area about any schools they recommend and then use the Internet to explore these schools further before you contact them.

If you request written information, make sure you read everything thoroughly before you call or make a visit. (You may find some of your questions are already answered in the school's marketing materials.)
