If you want to be a chef, talk to one, first. Ask around and see if anyone knows a chef. Next time you go to your favorite restaurant, ask if you can set up a convenient time to interview a chef or phone up cooking schools or a Chef Association in your area. Many chefs will be glad to talk to you.
Ask how they became a chef- what are the best local cooking schools, what classes and courses you can take in order to get into them and what culinary career would be best for you.
