All of our herbs from our Mesa’s 3 organic gardens located on the M Fusion patio, on the side of the “G” building and in the P300 area.

Careers

Culinary careers are everywhere-in restaurants, hotels, cruise lines, private clubs, resorts, private yachts, culinary schools, hospitals, and educational institutions. You can build your career in one of these hospitality segments, or easily transfer among the segments. According to the National Restaurant Association, the foodservice industry employs more than 11 million workers, making this industry one of the leading generators of job growth in the United States and the nation’s largest non-government employer. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts the restaurant industry’s growth will be more than 30 percent in the coming years.

Culinary and foodservice professionals and owners indicate that the biggest challenge facing the industry is finding educated, competent, and well trained personnel to handle this growth. The income level of chefs, cooks, and food-preparation workers differ among regions of the country and types of food-service establishments. The highest wages typically are found in upscale restaurants and hotels in large urban cities where several executive chefs are employed or in catering.

A major in Culinary Arts/Culinary Management will put you on track to become a culinary specialist with career options as a caterer, line cook, restaurateur, executive chef, food stylist, pastry chef, kitchen manager, private chef, entrepreneur, restaurant manager, food writer or editor, product research and development specialist, or sous chef. There are rapid promotional opportunities in this field for people with increasing skill sets and enhanced educational backgrounds.

Tweet Share Email Comment

With the advent of YouTube and the Internet, the possibilities are endless for aspiring chefs in this day-and-age. Many people have managed to make lucrative careers by first starting as video bloggers, and then moving onto TV and cookbook writing. Even though women make up the majority of home cooks, they run a small percentage of the top kitchens in culinary hubs like New York and Paris.

Despite gastronomy being a male-dominated industry, many female chefs are making names for themselves by being creative and rising through unorthodox means. Whether that may be video cookbook demos, “Mommy Blogging” for busy parents, or whatever other means, many women are getting their foot in the door of the culinary world.

And although you can’t just be a pretty face in this industry you still have to be able to create delicious dishes, fuse different cuisines, and think outside the box it doesn’t hurt to be an attractive chef. Here are 10 female chefs who are world-famous for their recipes, while also looking good in front of a camera.

Before Top Chef. Lakshmi was the host of Food Network’s 2001 series, Padma’s Passport. which was part of the Melting Pot series. The show featured Padma cooking recipes from around the world. She also was the host of several specials on South India and Spain for the British culinary tourism show, Planet Food .

9. Rachael Ray

New York-native Rachael Ray is easily the most recognizable female chef in the world today, thanks to her syndicated series’, her personality on camera, and her business savvy. It doesn’t hurt that she’s very attractive as well, but she has done anything but skate along on her looks alone.

Her daily talk show, Rachael Ray has won two Daytime Emmy’s, and her Food Network series, 30 Minute Meals. has garnered her another. Ray has written several cookbooks, launched a magazine, and hosted numerous programs, such as Rachael Ray’s Tasty Travels. and $40 a Day. both featured on the Food Network.

    Farm to Table Movement – History – Benefits of the Cuisine

    #

    Last Updated. September 9, 2013

    One of the biggest trends in the culinary world today is the farm-to-table movement. The phrase “farm to table” is a buzzword referring to food made with locally sourced ingredients. Our society is in a rapid state of technological innovation, which means that we often compromise health and nutrition for the sake of convenience, hence the popularity of fast food and TV dinners. However, a growing number of consumers have started to seek healthier and more environmentally friendly alternatives to the processed foods that dominate grocery store shelves. Learn more about the roots of the farm-to-table dining scene to understand why it has become such an important trend in our society.

    Back to Our Roots: Farm-to-Table Movement History

    The Rise and Fall of Processed Foods

    At the turn of the 20th century, most of the food that Americans ate came from within 50 miles. However, as Americans began moving away from rural areas and flocking to cities, many local food sources disappeared. Interstate highways and improvements in shipping technology led us to bring in food from further and further away. For the sake of convenience, American’s began to rely on processed foods as away to save time for meal preparations.

    Emphasizing Quality Over Convenience

    Farm-to-table restaurants are taking us back to our roots by valuing quality over ease and convenience. Processed foods, although quick to prepare, typically contain excessive amounts of sugar, fat, and sodium, and consuming these foods regularly can lead to health problems like high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer. The farm-to-table scene emphasizes simply prepared food comprised of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

    From the 70 s to the 21st Century

    The first farm-to-table restaurants can be traced back to the hippie movement in the 60s and 70s, when organic, local, and natural food became trendy and more people began supporting local farmers. Pioneers in the food to table movement include Alice Waters of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California, and Jerry Traunfeld of Herbfarm in Washington State.

    However, while these types of restaurants have existed for decades, it was not until about ten years ago, where the locavore movement began to really take off. Initially, farm-to-table restaurants began in progressive cities like Boulder, Colorado; Seattle, Washington; and Berkeley, California, but today they can be found everywhere from Austin to Anchorage.

    Emphasis on Locally Sourced, Seasonal Foods

    Increasing Availability

    Healthy food choices are often expensive and of limited availability, but that is slowly changing. More and more farm-to-table restaurants, farmer’s markets, and food co-ops are cropping up to meet the demand among consumers for healthy, local foods, as more chefs and consumers recognize the poorer taste and nutritional integrity of ingredients shipped in from far away.

    The Strenghs of Local Food

    According to the definition adopted by the US Congress in the 2008 Food, Conservation, and Energy Act. the total distance that a product can be transported and still be considered a local or regional agricultural food product is less than 400 miles from its origin.

    Fruits and vegetables that have to be shipped long distances are often picked before they have a chance to fully ripen and absorb nutrients from their surroundings. Because local food doesn’t have to travel long distances, it is grown in order to taste better and be healthier rather than to be resilient to long travel. The farm-to-table movement also has severed to help local economies by supporting small farmers, which were becoming a dying breed.

    Environmental Benefits of Farm-to-Table Dining

    Fewer Transport Miles = Fewer Transmissions

    Local food is not only healthier and tastier, it is also better for the environment because fewer transport miles equal fewer transmissions. According to a study conducted by the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture at Iowa State University, food travels 1,500 miles on average from farm to customer while locally sourced food travels an average of 44.6 miles. The same study found that the conventional food distribution system uses 4 to 17 times more fuel and emits 5 to 17 times more CO2 than local and regional systems.

    How Food is Transported Also Matters

    However, the environmental impact of food depends not only on how long it travels, but also on how it is transported. Ton for ton, trains are far more efficient at moving freight than trucks are. This means that the greenhouse gases associated with transporting potatoes trucked in from 100 miles away is the same as those associated with potatoes shipped in by rail from 1,000 miles away.

    Farm-to-Table Cuisine: A Refreshing Trend

    The farm-to-table scene is a refreshing trend in today’s hectic, technology-driven world. The movement brings us back to the basics and encourages us to enjoy fresh, simple foods. More of today’s consumers understand the value of eating local, seasonal food, and they are willing to pay a premium to get it. Gourmet chefs aren’t the only ones who are embracing farm-to-table cuisine. Even Chipotle, the fast-food Mexican chain, strives to buy many of its ingredients from local purveyors.

    If you’re thinking about training to become a culinary professional, consider incorporating aspects of the farm-to-table movement into your career so you can craft culinary creations that improve people’s health, protect the planet, and support the growth of local economies.

    Find Mississippi Cooking Schools – Culinary Arts Schools in MS #colleges

    Find a Culinary Arts Training Program in Mississippi

    This is the land of catfish, fried green tomatoes, and Mississippi Delta Blues music. Southern hospitality dominates the food scene within the state, but select culinary education programs look beyond cornbread and greens to provide comprehensive training for chefs-to-be.

    Jackson, Gulfport and Hattiesburg are the urban outposts that yield the most advanced culinary presence, but not all educational opportunities for chefs are in the state’s main cities. Look to Community and Technical Colleges for pure kitchen schooling, but advanced studies in nutrition and dietetics are best obtained in four-year universities.

    Choosing a Culinary School in Mississippi

    Narrow your search for culinary arts, pastry arts or restaurant management education by refining your chef’s dream. Are you a management-minded pro who wants to run the show? Or would you rather focus on creating your own hands-on kitchen niche? Answer these and other questions to place yourself on the best path forward – for you .

    Remember, your culinary education ultimately serves your job search, so choose a school that has these tools in place to move you along on your chosen career path.

    • Internship/externship opportunities as part of the curriculum
    • Working professional chef/instructors who bring varied experiences to their teaching kitchen
    • Student-run restaurant that is open to the public
    • Teaching kitchens equipped with state of the art equipment
    • Career planning and continuing education
    • Job boards and placement assistance

    Learn, Then Earn as a Chef or Pastry Chef in Mississippi

    Hattiesburg, Biloxi, Jackson, and Gulfport each offer unique culinary niches for students and job seekers. Well-known chef Robert St. John owns critically acclaimed restaurants in Hattiesburg and Meridien. Iron Chef Cat Cora began her culinary career in Jackson, where she was born and raised. Learn from these local heavy-hitters by initiating your own successful Mississippi career launch.

    Tap all the career resources available to you during, and after school. Memberships in professional organizations like the Hattiesburg or Mississippi Gulf Coast chapters of the American Culinary Federation. or the Southern Foodways Alliance. provide valuable networking and educational opportunities. Spreading the culinary word is the stated mission of industry associations like these, and it’s done through members-only scholarships, seminars and conferences. Access to these events, and the culinary cross-pollination that occurs there, is valuable input for career advancement.

    Wide exposure to local food culture should also be a requisite part of your Mississippi culinary education. Visit highly reviewed local restaurants with an eye toward local trends and traditions. Dissect talked-about menus for insight into local ingredients – and how chefs are using them.

    On a student budget, local food festivals are great ways to rub elbows with noted regional professionals. Chefs are eager to put their best bites forward at these events, and the casual environments are conducive to sharing ideas. Volunteer, participate in a student food competition, or take a temp gig as a festival cook at one of these festivals within the state:

    • World Catfish Festival
    • Annual Crawfish Festival
    • Natchez Food and Wine Festival
    • Biloxi Seafood Festival
    • Southern Foodways Alliance Symposium

    Salaries for chefs working in Mississippi vary based on location, position, experience and type of establishment. You can be sure that a sound chef’s education will increase your salary potential and upward mobility within the kitchen. Supervisory and management training and experience might yield an annual chef’s salary of $50,000 in Hattiesburg.
