As a working Executive Chef I am often asked advice on culinary schools. If you or someone in your family are considering a career as a chef and are planning to start your training by going to a culinary school then “Welcome to Culinary School” by Daniel Traster is a good book to get you started. It came to my attention when Daniel Traster interviewed me for inclusion in the book along with many other chefs and culinary instructors. The advice given by all of these chefs and educators is a very valuable feature of the book for anyone entering the culinary field. The contents and other features of the book are:
- Divided into three parts – Learning to Succeed in College, Maximizing Your Marketability, Your Graduating: Now What?
- Second Edition published
- 300 pages with useful appendix with professional culinary associations, and job descriptions
- Many interviews with advice from Chefs, Educators, Managers and Students
Daniel Traster should be proud of his latest edition; it will help many students on their journey into the field of culinary and pastry arts. It is published by Pearson and is available at Amazon.com.
