Today, culinary art is one of the most sought-after career options in the country.A chef is a culinary professional whose primary responsibility is to cook and present exotic dishes. As a chef, you will have to create a wide variety of foods like appetisers, snacks, salads, main dishes and desserts. Eventually, you will create your own recipes
and design your menus. As you grow in your career, you will have to maintain the inventory for the kitchen, buy kitchen supplies, monitor the quality of food, reduce wastage and operate business. You will also have to hire and manage staff and inspire them to work efficiently.

Culinary art is one of the respectable professions these days. It is a fascinating, professionally satisfying and lucrative career option. The initial few years of your career may be tough, but as you gain work experience and skills, you will become no less than a celebrity.

Educational qualifications
Until recently, those aspiring to become a chef would take up a course in hotel management. This course is meant to impart skills required to produce food and perform the managerial and administrative tasks of the hospitality industry. Eventually, degree and diploma courses dedicated to catering technology and culinary arts developed. Today, the trend of pursuing these courses picked up well. Those aspiring to become chefs pursue these courses as they centre on culinary skills. These courses also provide extensive insights required to pursue a career in this field.

To begin your career as a chef, you need to undergo high level of training. The Bachelor's degree programmes cater to this requirement providing exposure to all aspects of food preparation. The curriculum is a careful mix of classroom sessions, practical training, guest lectures and industry internships. During the course, you will learn about a variety of cuisines, menus, food storage, kitchen equipment, knife techniques, nutrition, inventory and purchasing, and service etiquette. However, much of a chef's learning is through internship and on-the-job training. Despite completing a four year course, you might spend time cleaning and peeling potatoes in the first year of your career!

Career prospects
After completing the course, you can seek jobs in restaurants, dining establishments, hotels, banquets, coffee shops, bakeries, caterers, airlines, cruise lines, hospitals, armed forces and educational institutions. Some of the top recruiters include ITC Hotels, The Taj Group, Oberoi, The Imperial, Marriott, The Leela, The Park, Lemon Tree
Hotels and Four Seasons.

Based on your skills and experience, your starting salary could be between Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 30, 000.
After you gain some work experience, you can choose to work as a freelancer or as a consultant to restaurateurs. You can also start your own food service establishment.

The job of a chef  involves a great deal of pressure and demands good physical and mental stamina. As a chef, you
are expected to work for long hours, multi task, meet short deadlines, minimise wastage and still deliver the best dishes consistently.
