Its best to have a safe food handling certificate if you work in any restaurant serving the public . i have cooked in several different types of restaurants. Fast food no experience required due to the fact the food is usually cooked with a timer that goes off when food is cooked so its idiot proof.

Line Cook at Suncoast

When I started cooking it was at Chilis and I was going to culinary school at the same time. Experience is definitely the key, but you need to start somewhere to get that. Find a restaurant with a chef or owner with an open mind and let them know you want to learn how to cook. Most chefs like teaching as well. It's actually a part of a chef's job to teach. It took some time and a lot of work but I eventually worked at a few restaurants on the Las Vegas strip. Very intense. Then I ended up as the executive sous chef of the largest hospital in Vegas. If you have the desire to learn it can be a very rewarding journey.

Cooking is all about timing and not being afraid to try new things. Learn your cook times, like how long does a steak cook vs. how long does a baked potato? Learn your sauces and purees. Everything else will come to you as you go.

Lead Cook at Mori Japanese Grill

Well first you would need to know your way around any kitchen then learn how to use the utensils also it's very important to know your temperatures personally I think if you have no exeriance start as a dishwasher and observe everything.

Hot Cook at Golden Corral

Really??? YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE, NOR A DIPLOMA, JUST NEED TO BE WILLING TO LEARN. I DIDN'T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WHEN I FIRST GOT JOB AS A COOK. THEY TRAINED ME. BUT EXPERIENCE & A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA IS A PLUS.
