Why Are People Shifting Careers to Cooking?

October 19, 2010 7:17pm CST
One day, a family member decided to enroll in a culinary school to pursue a career in cooking. I was a bit surprised about it because she was not the kitchen type of person you'll find holding a frying pan in one hand and a skillet in the other. NO, not her.. but, she's now nearing the end of her cooking classes and I must admit that she did very well ( basing from the food samples she shares with us). So, what's the motivation for the change of career? Could it be that its the "In" thing now to get a better pay? Will it last long?

Hi flori: All of a sudden, culinary arts is the most high paying job nowadays, I don't know why. Maybe people got hungry easily or they are more careful in terms of dietary habits. It may last or may be just a passing fancy, but remember that most restaurants, eateries, inns, hotels and the like has been around for the past thousand years or so. I say, maybe there's a career in cooking here.
