Great Food Jobs 2: Ideas and Inspirations for Your Job Hunt, winner of the the 2013 Gourmand Special Award of the Jury, is an almanac of eminently useful career guidance mixed with tasty bites of utterly useless gastronomical nonsense, including weird sushi combinations  and odd names of bakeries such as “Nice Buns.” A companion to the award-winning Food Jobs: 150 Great Jobs for Culinary Students, Career Changers and Food Lovers, this second volume describes an abundance of careers in the food industry in and out of the kitchen. In an era of ‘txt msgs,’ Chalmers’ Great Food Jobs 2 is refreshingly erudite, urbane, wry, witty,and consummately British. This sparkling, extraordinary  compendium will astonish and amuse, inform and make you laugh out loud!
