Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Culinary School delivers exactly what students need to know to thrive in culinary school and succeed in the culinary industry.  More than a book on culinary jobs and certification requirements, it outlines a realistic blueprint of how to get more out of school, enhance one’s credentials, and find a rewarding position within the field. A motivational tone is emphasized throughout and in-text interviews reinforce the book’s   universal appeal. Suggested tasks are provided at the end each chapter and encourage readers to develop study skills, credentials and strategies that will yield the ultimate goal–success in the culinary field.

When I visualize myself working in the culinary world, I see myself working for patients in a small home in the next couple of years? This hand -to- act book makes the culinary food service less intimidating Even if in the next 5 to 10 years I am able to be a dietary manager, I have to practice now in my community college. The welcome to culinary guide is great!
