Default How much $ do chefs make?

Wondering how much the average US chef makes in a fairly high-quality
restaurant in a major city. I don't mean a chain restaurant but a good,
quality place.

Executive Chefs, Sous chefs and Line chefs, specifically.

Any numbers anyone?

I hope zippy doesn't have plans to become rich and famous through
cooking. I found a very disturbing article tonight about the
California Culinary Academy.

Bottom line: check out the hotel and restaurant courses at your local
community college.

Are you an AVERAGE chef? Become exceptional...since an average chef
will make what you are worth. New York....Atlanta,.....will be
paying much more than Souix City....but the cost of living will mean
you take home the same amount of money. Why do you want to work
19 hours a day? Look for under 25,000.

Why do you care... if you have to ask it means you're not even
qualified for ice cream scooper.

community college.

At our local community college the classes in their culinary arts program
cost $100 per credit hour, with most classes being 3-4 hours each. So
you're looking at $300-400 per class and of course many classes are required
to complete the program.

There really is no reason to complete the program if it includes classes
of no interest at all. Safety is a must but is included in almost all
classes. There's a lot of repetition, too.

I skipped Medieval cooking because I didn't really want to cook for old
dead people. I also skipped cucina rapida because I didn't want to end
up cooking that. If I were shooting for a restaurant job it might be
different, but even so you'd probably have a type of restaurant in mind.

During the safety portions of classes the chef would go on and on about
how important (and it is) that food stay within a certain span of
temperatures. I was the only one in the room with a thermometer and he
was fascinated with its instant readings. Ahh, those Americans! They
have everything.

I suppose that could be said for EVERY question asked on usenet. I wanted
to hear it from the horses' mouths.

Holy crarp that's a damning article. Thanks for that. I just finished my
law degree and thought it might be more fun to go to school for another
couple of years and get an AA in Cheffin'... but it looks like a new shmuck
straight out of law school makes twice what the average sous chef makes.
That's crazy.. are there just a whole lot of chefs out there or what? Or
maybe a lot of restaurants.. keep driving the prices of dinner, and thus of
chef wages, down?

First, there's no such thing as a line chef. The term is
line cook. This is the most common position available, even
for someone with excellent cooking skills. There's something
like 20+ line cook positions for every chef or sous chef position.
Realistically, that's where most aspiring "chefs" end up, and
it still takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice to get there.

In San Francisco, really good ones can make about 50k per year.
When you factor in the dead time floating between jobs,
which is a a reality of the industry, it's less. Possibly
a lot less during the bad times. It's a very cyclical business.
