What is the role of work-placement mentoring in nurturing the next generation of Culinarians in order to improve the culinary profession? Is fear and intimidation acceptable in a professional kitchen? What is meant by professional kitchen? Can the reasons behind the high levels of staff turnover in kitchens be identified? What is meant by the term mentoring? In this article I hope to address these questions, and to discuss mentoring as a model for nurturing culinary talent. I draw upon both personal experiences and those of students who have experienced mentoring as part of the Professional Internship Module of the BA in Culinary Arts in the Dublin Institute of Technology to support my position.
