ID-100186769Talk to any of your friends or family members who work in a restaurant kitchen, and they will tell you about the long hours working nights, weekends, and holidays. They will tell you about the burns and knife related injuries, their sore feet and back problems, and the fast pace life of a restaurant chef. Many of us really enjoy this type of atmosphere as a career choice, however, it is not a fit for everyone. Here is a short-list of food related career choices other than working in a restaurant…

    Just what I needed to read! Thank you for sharing.

  2. great list! definitely a few things I wouldn’t have thought of, like a food consultant or a forager.

  3. Not sure if you can help at all, but would you happen to know the best universities in the US to study nutrition/dietetics? I am looking into studying overseas but not quite sure where to start 🙂

  4. Great, thanks heaps for that 🙂 I will have a look at the link. Not looking at getting into the chef side..more of the health/wellness side – might have to look at University of Chicago.

  5. A culinary nutrition degree is a great combination! I’m think I’m done studying for a while now though 🙂 I might put 5 years of nutrition & dietetics/exercise science to good use first! Best wishes for your studies.

    This is an aptly timed article, although I am not coming from a professional culinary background, I am a home cook of many years and blogger of seven! Recently the Design Agency (specializing in Food Packaging and Food Photography) where I had worked for the last nine years as a Client Service/Marketing/Manager/Jack of all trades, master of none, down-sized and I found myself without work. So I decided to pursue my passion of Food Styling. I am still learning the ropes as an assistant food stylist and recipe tester, but in my quest I have founds that many of the esteemed stylists and recipe developers have come from professional culinary backgrounds, another one for your list!

  7. Thanks for posting this! I get the total side-eye at school when I tell people I DON’T want to go work a line somewhere. I want to teach, and blog, and maybe write a cookbook someday. I just keep running into people with such a narrow definition of what “chef” means.

  8. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was good. I don’t know who you are but certainly
    you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  9. I want to to thank you for this excellent read!! I absolutely loved every little bit of
    it. I have you bookmarked to check out new things you post…

  10. Hello! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?

    There’s a loot of folks that I think would reall appreciate your content.
    Please let me know. Cheers

    if you see a sign for “Tortas Gigantes” those are so big that
    they can feed two people unless of course you have a
    big appetite. And by using alternative spices (you can obtain a list from your physician or dietician), you can make your food tasty without the danger of the spicy food
    effect. You will come across thousands of restaurants in West Bengal and other parts of
    the country selling Bengali sweet.
