As a Culinary Art / Restaurant intern with Discovery Internships, you may find yourself doing hands on work with a professionally-trained chef to create and prepare exquisite meals or perhaps a savory dessert. Interns could work in a restaurant, pastry shop, or culinary educational institution. Interns may also find themselves coordinating schedules with employees, working with food and beverage suppliers, coordinating shipments, or designing and pricing menus.
We are, without question, the most experienced and best at what we do. Here's why?
There are hundreds of career options for someone who wants to work with food, from cooks and chefs, caterers, food writers, food stylists, recipe testers, cookbook writers, cooking teachers, demonstration chefs, or cooking show hosts. The most common career path within the Culinary Arts profession starts with a position as a chef. Chefs skillfully create and prepare meals or desserts that are as pleasing to the palate as to the eye.
Restaurant Managers keep themselves very busy in this fast paced industry by selecting and pricing menu items, hiring chefs and servers, estimating food consumption, negotiating with food and beverage suppliers while simultaneously supervising all operations. Being a successful restauranteur is as much about managing inventory, marketing, and sound financial planning as it is about serving a delicious meal. The restaurant business is one of the most competitive industries in the world and it takes much more than top notch culinary skills to be successful.
