A chef job isn’t just for those trained at fancy French cookery schools, or those who have been whipping up pastries since before they could walk. In fact, you could be a chef right now – but do you have what it takes? If you tick any of the boxes below, you could be well on your way to landing a job as a kitchen assistant, chef or head chef in one of the most exciting industries there is – hospitality. You’re the best cook in your flat shareYou don’t mean to brag, but you’re kind of a big deal... If you’ve got the crown of the best cook in your household, why stop there? Take your domination a step further and test out your skills in a commercial kitchen. Imagine how much fierier your fajitas could be if you had more than two feet of counter space to work with!You love hosting dinner partiesFriends say your dinner parties are the best in the business, and you tend to agree with them. There’s nothing quite like that feeling of feeding the people you love, especially when they’re still raving about your risotto for weeks afterwards, and being a professional chef can give you those warm fuzzies every day.You’re at your best when you have a planYou wouldn’t call yourself a control freak, but you also won’t give anyone your extra special chocolate mousse recipe because you’re not convinced they’d do it justice. If you’re protective over your pots and pans, refuse to start cooking until you’ve read to the end of the recipe, and start thinking about your dinner plans before you’ve even had your morning coffee, a chef career could be right up your street. It’s the kind of job where order and planning are as important as creativity and flexibility – shout out to all you list makers!Lunch was your favourite subject at schoolYou don’t have to love food to be a chef, but it definitely helps!
