What this job is about
It's basically what every foodie aspires to be – a chef. And it's not just the tall hat that gets people excited about the possibility of a career in food: It's the creativity that goes along with the job. As a chef, you'd be in charge of creating, testing and then recreating recipes for restaurant patrons. And there are no secret recipes here – you'd have to manage the line cooks to ensure food safety and consistency when you send plate after plate out into the dining roomObviously, a love of food and a creative palette can help, but time management and leadership skills are what really keep a kitchen going.
