Review: So, You Want to Be a Chef? How to Get Started in the World of Culinary Arts by Jane Bedell


Whet your appetite with this step-by-step guide to becoming a culinarian.

Put on your chef’s coat and leap into the world of food! From running your own kitchen to writing a food blog to inventing new recipes and even learning about molecular gastronomy, So, You Want to Be a Chef? unveils everything you need to know to break into the culinary arts.

I watch pretty much every cooking-related TV reality show, so I've become quite interested in cooking and anything related to it.

In So, You Want to Be a Chef? How to Get Started in the World of Culinary Arts, kids can learn all about the different positions in the restaurant world, from chefs to restaurant owners to writers.

It's too bad this book wasn't around when I was a kid. This book contains a lot of really good information and since it covers almost all parts of the cooking industry, kids can learn about the different careers and help narrow down which careers they are interested in.

There are also interviews with top chefs and personalities, who have achieved a great deal of success in their careers, and kids who are starting to make their mark in the food world. I thought the features on the kids were a nice touch as it could help kids be inspired since it shows that it is possible for kids to be able to do a lot in the industry already.

Thanks to NetGalley and Aladdin/Beyond Words for the e-ARC. Publication date of So, You Want to Be a Chef? How to Get Started in the World of Culinary Arts is on October 22, 2013.
