Grade 4-6-This photo-essay explores careers in the culinary arts. Using large, full-color photos and an accessible text, Maze takes readers into the kitchens of real restaurants to see the many people who contribute to the preparation of a fine meal. The author describes the work of the prep cook, pastry assistant, and dishwasher, as well as that of the head chef. All sorts of education and training programs are mentioned, from teaching nutrition in elementary schools to after-school programs for children to earning a bachelor's degree at the Culinary Institute of America. A history of the culinary arts includes etchings and paintings from around the world, and there is a section of international dishes with photographs and descriptions. Some famous chefs are profiled, and the endeavors of some food entrepreneurs are related. Nothing is treated in depth, but by the end of the book, readers will have tasted a smorgasbord of information bits. The last two pages list culinary organizations, professional cooking schools, and other resources for those who wish to learn more.
