A pastry chef would waste time, money, and the opportunity to gain real connections in the workforce if he or she didn’t attend a culinary arts program that focused on the applicable skills he or she would need to know. Attending a technical college may be a smart choice if you already know what you want to do with your life and want to join the workforce quickly.
