SO YOU WANT TO BECOME A CHEF?
Simple though it may seem, but becoming a chef is not a piece of cake. Cooking is an art that requires culinary and people skills, a willingness to explore and the tenacity to stay the course and perform in highly stressful situations.
It starts with being a cook and working under a chef until you’re ready to take charge of the whole kitchen. ‘Cooking is an amazing journey. It is like studying medicine, it takes ten to fifteen years to learn’, says celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. For this reason, patience and perseverance are the key ingredients, when both cooking a dish, and making a career in the food industry.
Most established chefs are of the opinion that knowing how a dish tastes when perfectly cooked is the one thing you need to learn in order to cook well.
This is because you are more likely to cook it ten times better if you know what you want it taste like in the end. Taking classes is not absolutely necessary as experience is the ultimate teacher. However, education coupled with experience can go a long way in giving you an edge over your peers.
Other qualities that make a great chef include commitment to quality, attention to detail and above all, a thorough understanding of how different flavours complement each other. However, passion for food is the icing on the cake!

Ramesh Prasad was a poor merchant who found it difficult to provide himself and his family even two square meals each day. He was taken to the court by his neighbour who was very cunning and wanted to occupy his land. The fraud blamed Ramesh for illegally occupying the land where the poor man’s house stood. Ramesh had the papers of the land in order and could prove to the judiciary that the land was his own. Ramesh also knew that the Judge was corrupt and could be bribed.
Therefore, on his way to the court he decided to take a gift for the judge. At the hearing, the accuser stated his case and then deliberately threw a thick wad of notes on the floor, pretending it was an accident. The judge followed the clue. He looked at Ramesh enquiringly if he could match the offer. In response Ramesh, patted his own pocket. The judge was pleased to see that it was stuffed and he could make out the outlines of large objects in it and was sure that they were gold ornaments. Dreaming of pleasing his wife, the judge gave the verdict in Ramesh's favour and summoned him to his chambers.
