My name is Monika I'm a polish student. I have a great passion of cooking and I'm so keen in that. I would like to star the career as the Chef, however I have no education of culinary school. I've attended many cooking courses f.ex by Kurt Scheller. My question is, is it required to graduate from culinary school to become a chef? I know it's a heaven better to do, however is it required? I've been thinking of taking the 6 weeks course at Paul Bocuse's academy, does that certificate equal to the Chef title? Can I work as a chef (souse chef and beginner chef) without graduation from culinary school? If the chef diploma is required please tell me where to study the best with no fortune spend;)
Thanx and please help me !
