Format: Paperback
i went to an event at ICE where Rick and Anna were discussing this book. Its a great book. I've been considering going to culinary school for some time now. I'm in the midst of a career change. I've don't some research within the industry for salaries, growth etc. BUT this book breaks everything down for you. I read this book in 3 days. It made me feel better about the path i would like and plan on taking. The book tells it like it is. Working as a chef is hardwork and long hours but the rewards in the end are all worth it. I think TV has romanticize what being a chef is - it doesn't give you the good, the bad and the ugly. This book definitely does. I highly recommend it to anyone considering a career in culinary.

Format: Paperback
I am considering a career in the culinary field and this book has been an immense help in providing some insight into what different jobs and career paths are like. It's interesting because you can read interviews straight from well-known and lesser known people in the industry. Sometimes their interviews reveal information you never would have guessed.

Culinary Careers met expectations, proving an insightful and helpful read. Mainly due to the many interviews from experts, novices and career changers that work in the culinary industry. I suggest this book to anybody considering a career change or a leap into the culinary industry. ~Woody

I gave this to my former foster son's 22 year old son who wants to go to culinary school. I looked on Amazon and "looked inside" books where that feature was allowed. I figured this would be the best way to start and he absolutely loves it. He liked the way it was divided into many segments, gave real info and advice, and was the kind of book he could start and stop. Also: since he's pondering going into this as a career he found it very encouraging and gave some good pointers when and how he can begin. I do gift a lot of books to relatives, friends, and often the hype doesn't match up to the book. This one exceeded the hype.
