Julia didn't appear on TV until 1962 when she appeared on a book review show on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) station of Boston, WGBH, led to the inception of her television cooking show after viewers enjoyed her demonstration of how to cook an omelet. Hector Boiardi is better known as Chef Boyardee, but he didn't become a television icon until the company's commercials ran. Answer #2: While Julia did write Julia's Declicious Little Dinners, she did not write Julia's Delicious Little Kitchen. If you said My Life in France, that was her 2006 autobiography. It was compiled by her and Alex Prud'homme, her husband's grandnephew, during the last eight months of her life, and completed and published by Prud'homme following her death in August 2004. Answer #3: Nigella Lawson - the other three chefs (Child, De Laurentiis and Batali attended Le Cordon Bleu. ________________________________________________________ Culinary School Q & A 1) I love to cook and my family says that I really am talented. Do I need to go to school to become a chef? Not everyone who works as a cook or chef has formal culinary training, but a good education can help establish and solidify skills that might make you a more desirable employee. Individuals who invest in their career and attend a culinary arts or hospitality school might have increased opportunities for advancement. It is important to note that the path to becoming a chef requires commitment and patience. Most graduates start their career in entry and mid-level positions where they need to prove their skills and abilities. A formal education is really only the beginning of a lifetime of learning and professional growth. 2) What sort of careers are out there for recent culinary school graduates? There are various career opportunities for graduates of a culinary arts program. Some examples of common job titles might include: sauté cook, banquet cook, grill cook, sous chef, assistant manager, or baker. Most quality culinary arts schools offer career placement assistance services to help find suitable first jobs for graduates. The National Restaurant Association is a great source of information for statistics regarding employment in the industry. 3) What is a typical day like in culinary school? Many culinary schools focus on hands-on learning in kitchen laboratories, so most students quickly grow accustomed to working in this environment. Chef instructors might demonstrate a number of techniques and then the students have to show what they learned and apply their skills in the kitchen. A typical day might include attending a lecture, watching a chef demonstration, and then preparing a selection of dishes for evaluation. Some classes might be lecture based and include presentations, class discussion, and group projects. 4) What should I look for in a school? There are many ways to evaluate a culinary arts school. Since every student is unique, a school that accommodates your specific needs in terms of location, schedule availability, and enrollment times may be a good option. Also, consider the national and international reputation of a school and the quality of the faculty. A thorough tour of the facilities will give you a good sense of how a school operates. Ask lots of questions and make sure that the school can help turn your passion into a career. 5) I want to get into restaurant and hotel management. Can a culinary arts education help me achieve this goal? A broad-based culinary training can help anyone in the foodservice and hospitality industry gain important knowledge and skills. Many culinary arts programs that offer degrees include courses in management, wine and beverage, cost controls and accounting, and hospitality operations. ®The Le Cordon Bleu logo is a registered trademark of Le Cordon Bleu B.V.

Culinary Schools are great. They teach you what you will need to grow on. I just wish I could become a pastry chef one day.
