Considering a Professional Chef Job in Georgia

September 2, 2009 Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta 0 Comments

Georgia is one of those unique places in the United States that seamlessly blends rich Southern tradition with a cosmopolitan flair. GA chefs get their pick of cuisines, from down-home cooking to fare from the Asian communities that have taken up residence in Atlanta. Top culinary schools in GA offer programs in everything from kitchen management to pastry arts, and many chefs, once they have a degree and plenty of kitchen experience, serve as sous chefs to more acclaimed chefs de cuisine.

Quaint Southern Living

First, imagine the possibilities for chef jobs in Georgia. There are artsy, legendary towns like Savannah (where Paula Deen got her start) rife with small Southern cafes in need of sous chefs. Every year world-famous golfers come to play the Masters tournament at Augusta, and their high-brow fans look for a taste of classic Southern cooking. And what about the tourists who come to see Underground Atlanta or take in an Atlanta Braves game?

The point is that Georgia’s got a personality and culture that draws people from all over the country. With an audience like that, anyone interested in pursuing a job as a chef should consider a degree from a top culinary school in GA.

Cooking as a Career

The next step? For someone with enough experience and kitchen skills, a position as a sous chef in one of the best restaurants in Savannah, Augusta, Atlanta, or any of Georgia’s other small, charming towns. The reward will be the chance to learn from a great GA chef, and to serve a clientele that appreciates good cooking.

Georgia Food Service

A career as a GA chef could we a wonderfully rewarding way to learn how to mix modern cuisine with the rich traditions of the South. With so many top culinary schools and so many tourist attractions, Georgia will continue to be a great place to get a head start in the food service industry. With a culinary degree, kitchen experience and skills, and a job as a sous chef, any chef can have a great time cooking in Georgia.
