Cooking skills are a life insurance policy of sorts. Learn how to cook, and you can secure work for the rest of your life, wherever you travel or decide to live. While cuisines will vary, cooking is most certainly a universal language.

The culinary world encompasses a wide range of jobs and careers, from the service industry, which includes restaurant and hotel work, to food science, to food styling to recipe testing and consulting. And the restaurant industry accounts for 12.8 million American jobs, second only to the number employed by the government.
