    The development of the UK restaurant industry is briefly outlined, and then the study seeks to examine the skills and characteristics needed to progress as a chef. Rather than describe the factors that drive workers from the trade, they are explored as problems which must be accepted and overcome, and virtues which must be acquired if anyone aspires to become a great chef. Sources include the comments of top chefs, food writers and others within the industry, as well as lengthy discussions with, and observations of, those working within the sector.
