Can I be a chef after going to cookery school?

While there is no hard and fast rule for what it takes to be a personal chef, a culinary degree would help get your resume on top of the pile. Depending on one's definition of "personal chef," most moms fit the job description. But families who go to the expense of hiring a chef for their home want creativity and variety, two qualities that are developed in culinary school. Keep in mind that becoming a chef does not guarantee your future as a personal chef. Most opportunities are in the major cities and abroad, so relocation is likely, too.
