What are some other paths in the food industry?

Roto asked:

I’m 21 and I’m a cook. I graduated from a culinary school. Right now, i work in a restauarant to gain some exp. I would like to continue to keep educated myself becuz learning nevers end. But I wanna ask what other educations can i get to help in my cooking field other than pastry and sugar decoration course. I really enjoy creating new dishes with different kind of flavors and textures by using my own theory. I believe cooking will bring happiness to ppl. I was thinking taking chinese herb medicine. (What other suggestion do u have?) I never intend to open a restuarant and become a executive chef. I look at cooking as more in scientific and formulas.

BTW, i’m also a language lover. I speak English, Chinese, French, Spanish, and a bit of Russian. I think the language can give me that extra boost in my cooking area.

No short answer plz.

Should i enter the culinary program?

emily asked:

Im a sophomore in high school and im trying to decide weather to enter a culinary program that would take up half of my classes and leave me with only core classes(math, science…) I would love to be a part of this program because i plan on opening my own bakery when i get out of collage. The problem is that i wouldnt be able to continue with my 3rdand 4th years of french(something iv been planning to do since junior high)or participate in any other electives. So should i just go for it because of my ultimate goals or make the most of the classes i have avalable to me?
Also i have only about two days to make this choice.

I need help with employment in New York City?

Greg V asked:

I am moving to New York City June 5th of this year to attend the French Culinary Institutes Pastry Arts program, and am desperately looking for a job as soon as I get out there. My family doesn’t have much money at all to help me while I’m there, the most they can give me is 40 dollars, all I have for myself is 67. I can cook, I can clean, I’ve been a janitor before, a short order cook, and I’ve been a part time housekeeper. If anyone has any opportunities open, please let me know.

French translation help?

metavain asked:

Okay I did most of it can you just fix it up for me?

The mean temperature averages 79°F. Two regular, alternating wind currents (east and northeast) cool the atmosphere. These are the tradewinds, called les alizés. There is only about a 5° difference between summer and winter temperatures.

The waters of the Atlantic Ocean lap its shores on the east and the Caribbean Sea is to the west. The island is located 4,261 miles from Paris (8 hours by plane) and approximately 275 miles from the northern coast of the South American continent. The closest two neighboring islands are Dominica (15.5 miles to the north) and Saint Lucia (23 miles to the south.)
Two Catholic Cathedrals and a large number of parish churches illustrate the importance of Catholicism on the island.

The culinary styles found on this French-speaking island reflect its international cultural heritage. Traditional French cuisine is widely available, including many delicacies such as caviar, as well as many specialty dishes that are unique to the French West Indies.
