So, you want to be the next Mario Batali or Rachael Ray? How about the next Iron Chef? Have dreams of making it big in the culinary world? Well, young Grasshopper, maybe you should think about going into a culinary program to see if a career in the kitchen is right for you.
 
“The reality food shows are deceiving. They do not give you the real picture of what it is like to work in the food industry,” Mike Armstrong, owner of Michael’s Café and Bakery in east Toledo said. “First, the average work week is 50-60 hours. I realized that up front. Think about it. The times you will be working are the times when other people are playing like holidays and weekends. If going out on Fridays and Saturdays is important to you, don’t even dream of going into the business.”
 
Armstrong knows well of what he speaks. Growing up, Armstrong said he always enjoyed eating and with it, he began to enjoy cooking what he ate as well.
