Food Service Jobs in Austin

September 19, 2009 Le Cordon Bleu Austin 0 Comments

Austin, Texas was once a sleepy capital city, but in recent years it has been thrust into the national spotlight. This is largely due to its spectacular growth between the years of 2000 and 2006, wherein it inherited the mantle of the third-fastest growing metropolis in the country. Still expanding fast enough to burst at the seams, the Austin area is home to 1.6 million residents and benefits from the cool irrigation of the Colorado River, making it one of the more scenic cities in Texas.

A City Full of Arts, Entertainment, and Culture

Unlike some of the other cities in the Southwest, Austin has managed to develop a reputation as a spot for those on the outskirts of American culture to gather. Naturally, this has drawn creative types from all over the country and helped to make Austin a hotbed of music, art, and other forms of cultural expression.

When It Comes to Cooking, Austin Heads the List

The variety of different restaurants and food service industry education available in the Austin area help to make it one of the culinary hot spots of Texas. The robust restaurant scene is fed by the thousands of music enthusiasts who flock to the area every year for festivals like the South by Southwest Music and Media Conference. The area’s film festival is also a large draw that is growing in popularity every year.

Along with this influx of arts-related innovation have come some of the most interesting jobs out there. To help keep their scene cooking, Austin has seen a renaissance in terms of both restaurant openings and the establishment of culinary institutes and cooking classes. A sizable portion of the local population is interested in improving their cooking skills in order to make their dinners at home a little more interesting, but on top of this are the professional cooking education programs meant to produce top-quality candidates for Austin chef jobs.

It’s important to keep in mind that learning to cook in Austin doesn’t mean restricting yourself to a Tex-Mex or all-beef menu. There are as many different styles of cooking available to learn in Texas as there are anywhere else in the world, and in terms of cooking, Austin can become your gateway to the type of culinary education that will open up a new world of food service opportunity.
