Culinary Arts: A Hot Degree

Do you love food, but hate the idea of sweating in a fast-paced kitchen atmosphere?

Consider a degree in Culinary Arts. Many opportunities await that don't necassarily involve boiling pots of liquids, third degree burns from hot baking pans, or smelling like cabbage or funky cheese at the end of your shift.

You could chose to sit in a stuffy office cubicle crunching numbers, but wouldn't you rather crunch diamond shaped ice cubes and purple carrot sticks. Yes, I said purple. Culinary Art is art. The best thing about this art is job security. People will always need food and drink.

If you enjoy writing you might like the off-beat career path I took. As a wine and food expert you could become a food writer AND GET PAID TO EAT AND DRINK!

If you haven't ever gotten paid to drink, then you aren't living! I have written reports on my experiences eating and drinking and been fully reimbursed for my bill, with bonusus!

Plus, it's a great icebreaker to invite the opposite sex to dinner without feeling awkward or making any commitments.

I recently had an extremly talented guitarist who has traveled all over the world in a well known death metal band tell me I was awesome! Me, awesome? A thirty-something year old, single, mother of three impressed a rock star? Yeah, baby!

That, in itself, makes Culinary Arts a great career choice. It allows you to have the opportunity to travel and meet all sorts of different people. People love talking about food and drink. There are so many career choices for someone with a Culinary Arts degree that don't remotely resemble an episode of Hell's Kitchen.

Go online and check out the various careers associated with this versatile degree. You may be surprised at how many differnt opportunities await you!

I certainly was!
