Hello everyone, I am a classically trained chef who graduated from a very well known culinary school in the United States Magna Cum Laude, I also went on afterwards and attended advanced training at a very well known culinary school in Europe. I love working with food and writing has always been nothing but a hobby for me. However, lately the stresses of working in a busy kitchen have really been getting to me and have started affecting my health. I have no educational back ground in journalism, writing, or literature but I was thinking about trying to find a job in food outside of the kitchen. Being that I don't have any journalism degree or anything like that, what do you think my chances are of being able to get a job as a food writer or as an assistant to a food writer, if there is a such thing? I actually am a published author. I use to be a member of a Historical Society and had several articles published in historical compilations and in a few small town newspapers but nothing major and nothing that has been seen or read by a national audience. So first of all. Do have a shot of landing a job like this or is it just a pipe dream at this point? My second question is, How do you land a job like this? I mean I have never seen one advertised anywhere but I feel sure that my two culinary degrees and my experience working in restaurants would really be an asset to me in the field. I just have no idea how to proceed or if I should even if even have a chance. I realize that being a professional food writer is in its self stressful, of that I have no doubt. But I honestly have to get out of the kitchen for health reasons and plus I am starting to get really sick of the hours, something that has never really bothered me until recently. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
