I have heard of executive chefs working in fine hotels in Las Vegas making a quarter of a million dollars a year, but these are very good chefs working at large five star hotels. It takes alot of hard work and years of experience in the industry to earn that kind of money. A chef fresh out of school would probably not make that kind of money.
