If you are thinking of applying for a job as a chef or a cook at a restaurant, a high school degree is typically enough when it comes to formal education. However, most restaurants do want you to have experience in this field if they are going to hire you. Because this can be tough to get, having a culinary arts background or a related Associates Degree is a good way to jumpstart your career. It’s not necessary, but can help.
