The most obvious of all food-related roles to choose is that of a chef. Whether you want to work in a Michelin starred restaurant, a local bistro, cruise ship or even a pastry kitchen. Chefs are, of course, the people that are at the front lines of the kitchen, preparing and cooking the dishes that will be sent out for customers. 

However, before you enter into such a career, it wise to find out about the job first. In fact, the long hours, most of which you will spend standing while working in a hot and steamy kitchen can be something of a challenge for some. Also, the constant pressure of having to get orders out on time can be too stressful for many. 

However, there will always be people that thrive on this pressure. In fact, when you combine this drive with the love of devising new dishes, a role as a chef can be a gratifying one for a committed foodie.

Of course, the first thing you will need to think about is what kind of ingredient you will produce and supply. Those with significant funds may choose to raise livestock. This being something that allows them to supply meat products to a professional kitchen. While those with smaller budgets can do very well gown things like microgreens.

In fact, choosing to be a Microgreens Farmer can be a very lucrative option, as the demand for such products is currently very high. The reason being that it is easy to set up with just a few relatively inexpensive pieces of equipment.

Restaurant owner

If you don’t fancy the other options, there is another option to consider. Of course, its opening and managing a restaurant yourself. 

It is wise to consider this very carefully behind, however. The reason being that many people believe running an eatery to be much easier than it actually is. After all, it’s not just about pleasing customers but balancing the books, managing your staff, finding the best ingredients as well.

Of course, having said that, there is no better type of person to start up their own restaurant that one that has a real passion for food. Something that makes this as legitimate a career choice for a foodie as any of the others mentioned above.
