Learn to appreciate cooking as an art form: Preparing food isn't just about sustenance or about helping people enjoy what they eat (although those are certainly two reasons to prepare food for people), it's also about sharing art with people. The way you plate your dishes is an art form in itself, something that your customers can take pleasure in looking at. Then there's the way that you combine aromas and tastes to create different feelings, in the same way that paintings use colors and form to incite different emotions. By studying culinary arts, you'll learn
how to appreciate food as an art form. This, in turn, will result in you putting more care into the food you create, and potentially allow for more fulfillment from watching customers enjoy your food.

Learn to appreciate different cultures: Food is closely intertwined with culture. Think about all the different foods that are available from all over the world and how people often pass down family recipes from one person to another. By studying culinary arts, you'll learn how different cultures prepared different types of foods. This will give you a much greater appreciation for different cultures, which in turn helps to build empathy for people in general. You can share your knowledge of different cultures with your customers by implementing various
ingredients or cooking techniques used by different cultures in your dishes, thereby helping to spread an appreciation for different styles of cooking. This is an incredibly effective way to get people to open up to new things, especially if they haven't been exposed to different cultures.
