1. A decent education is recommended for those planning a career as a cook or chef. High school or vocational school courses in culinary are particularly helpful. Many government and private institutions offer short courses, training and summer workshops for cafeteria kitchen workers with aspirations of becoming cooks.

2. There are many private corporations in the food service and hotel industries which offer paid internships and summer jobs, which can provide valuable experience. For the internship, you need to be a students of hotel management.

3. To achieve the level of skill required of an executive chef or cook in a fine restaurant, many years of training and experience are necessary.
