Teaching you the fundamental art of cooking along with classic and modern culinary techniques, culinary school can give you the tools you need to succeed. Still not sure if culinary school is right for you? Check out these 5 reasons why you might want to consider enrollment today.   1.) Master the Tricks of the Trade First and foremost, going to culinary school can help you master the tricks of the trade, or in other words, the techniques that will be necessary in the kitchen to help you succeed. In fact, during culinary school you can expect to learn how to prepare international recipes, serve customers and even organize a dining room. At Florida Technical College, you will even be able to put your skills to the test at our very own “Zazon Café” which is open to the public.   2.) Travel the World The benefits of enrolling in a culinary program don’t end there. In addition to helping you master the tricks of the trade, you’ll also have the opportunity to travel the world if you choose. Whether you dream of working on a cruise ship, hotel, or even a restaurant across the world, with a background in professional culinary techniques, you’ll be able to take your skills on the go. Stay at home or head across the globe, it’s up to you!   3.) Become Your Own Boss Does being your own boss sound like a dream come true? Luckily, culinary professionals have no problem becoming independent professionals. After all, whether you choose to work as a private chef or even open your own restaurant, as a professional chef you’ll have the opportunity to become completely self-employed.   4.) Enjoy a Competitive Salary Earning an average pay of around $41,000 annually, professional chefs are able to enjoy a highly competitive salary. While estimates can vary by location as well as by experience, completing a culinary program will give you a competitive edge when it comes to seeking employment. If you’re looking for a career that will enable you to earn a comfortable living, rest assured that completing culinary school could be just what you need to take that next step forward.   5.) Learning Beyond the Classroom Going to culinary school enables you to not only develop an employable skill but a skill that you will use for the rest of your life. After all, just consider how many times you cook. If you’re like a lot of people, probably more often than you can even count! As a chef, you’ll develop culinary techniques that you will be able to take with you wherever you go. Whether it’s perfecting the Christmas roast or treating your loved ones to a delicious home cooked meal, as a chef, you can rest easy in knowing that your learning goes beyond the classroom.
