Salary Expectations After Graduating
Culinary School

Before you dive in and go back to school, you may want to know how much money you can expect to make after becoming an honorary chef. A chef salary is dependent upon years at school and what area in which you decide to specialize. The years that you do at culinary school are similar to years at a typical college. The more you learn, the more your qualifications will be able to pull a higher salary.

Chef Training Salaries

An associate degree is the first step in graduating from culinary school. An associate degree can take from as little as a year to up to two years. A degree from a good cooking school can get your foot in the door at restaurants or catering businesses. The first range of salary is approximately $30,000 per year. Although not a lot of money, it starts you off on your way to being a top chef.

Pastry chefs make somewhere around the middle of the road salaries. Pastry chefs make an average $50,000 per year. Pastry chefs usually run a separate dessert kitchen where they provide high class restaurants with tantalizing sweets and cakes.

Executive chefs can make well over $100,000 per year. Many executive chefs own their own restaurant, so they can make even more money if their restaurant is successful. Executive chefs also make good money running big kitchens in luxury hotels and famous resorts.
