Cooks are often trained at a culinary school, receiving degrees in food preparation and related fields. Formal culinary training isn’t always required for restaurants; many cooks learn on the job under sous chefs or head chefs. Typically, fine dining establishments have formal educational requirements.
Although being a cook can remain a career in and of itself, there is room for advancement. Cooks often may be promoted to sous chef or even executive chef if they work hard and develop other qualifications such as creating a menu. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
