Miami is the undisputed leader in the culinary scene in all of Florida, and is home to numerous award-winning restaurants. Overall 15 restaurants have received recognition from Forbes Travel Guide's annual star award rankings, including 5- and 4-star recommendations, more than any other county in the state. With near perfect weather, diverse ethnic food options, and one of the best culinary destinations in Florida, Miami just may be the most attractive option for students considering a culinary education. Many programs focus on the business side of the hospitality industry, best suited to careers as managers or used as the starting point for further education. Other schools provide hands-on instruction for those who want to work as chefs, bakers, bartenders, caterers or line cooks. Pay in Miami is also one of the highest in the nation and according to BLS statistics, offers its 1,000 restaurant managers a nearly $74,000 annually salary and an impressive 13% growth rate through 2022. Chefs and head cooks can pocket $57,000 and be comfortable with projected 14% growth, while bakers with a smaller 7% growth rate earn about $24,000 annually.
