Since olden times, Indian women have been famous for cooking and other household activities. A well-known fact (of course you must be knowing), most of the Indian females are encouraged to cook and discouraged from pursuing their higher education. Male dominating society has a belief that women are meant to stay back at home especially in Indian society. A popular line states, “Behind every successful man there is a hand of a woman”. I ask all the females of our society ‘why behind a successful man? Why not being as successful as a man? Why doesn’t a female think of converting her cooking talent into her career?’
In this modern era, cooking has become such a successful career that even men are striving hard to win the prestigious title of ‘Master Chef’ at various professional levels. Men and women in western countries are earning millions through their cooking career. You must be knowing about Sanjeev Kapoor. Of course! He is one of the famous Indian male chefs.
Another success story is of Munaf Kapadia, an MBA graduate who left his job at Google to start-up his own kitchen, thereby turning his mother’s cooking talent into a brand. Munaf’s mother Nafisa is a talented cook, who has guided him with her recipes. Munaf has earned a turnover of around Rs. 50 Lakhs from his cooking business.
Even the most renowned restaurants and cafes such as KFC, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut are famous for their chefs and cooks. Do you think you would have visited these places frequently had the food not tasted delicious enough?
Food is a necessity for all living beings. Can a human being survive without eating? Not only does a person spend a handsome amount of income on his or her food but also on fodder for their pets. In this fast-moving, corporate world where people have no time to cook food for themselves, career opportunities for talented cooks and chefs are rapidly increasing.
The food sector is expected to grow by 30% within 4 years.
