Pursuing a passion often rejuvenates one’s spirit, driving them to stop at nothing to reach the goals they set out. As they grow older, the inevitability of fallout can occur once they enter the real world and are forced to make a living, abandoning their passion for ensuring financial stability. Because of that, teenagers today are already shaping their careers as early as possible.
Zachary Moskowitz is a fourteen-year-old chef on the rise. His journey began when he was younger, and he was experimenting with his interests. Like most children, Zachary delved into different hobbies. Among his favorite hobbies was cooking. Helping around the kitchen, Zachary exhibited an instinct that only provided his family with a glimpse of his extraordinary gift. Looking to hone his talents, Zachary’s parents signed him up for a cooking class.
At only eight years old, the young chef dealt with a bag of mixed emotions like excitement and nervousness as he entered the kitchen of an experienced chef. However, whatever hesitations he had would soon be washed away as Chef Meika would help widen his horizon. The kitchen was no longer a place that intimidated Zachary. Instead, it became his sanctuary where his imagination could run rampant and let his creativity flow through the food he made.
The experience sparked his passion for the culinary arts. Following his lessons with Chef Meika, Zachary would continue honing his craft. Initially, the young chef exercised his knowledge at home, bringing his potential to light and mesmerizing his friends and family. Although he was showered with praises, Zachary knew that he had much to do. With age and time on his side, the young chef asked his family for their support as he decided to take a couple more cooking classes. Apart from taking classes, Zachary would spend time learning from online videos.
By December 2019, Zachary Moskowitz decided to share his talents with the world by creating an Instagram account. Going by the name Chef Z, he started sharing his works. From pastries to pasta and more, Chef Z followed up on his Instagram by creating a Chef Z’s Cafe website where people could order his cooking. Since then, people have shared nothing but praises regarding his culinary skills. Additionally, Chef Z has been extending his knowledge in the arts to anyone who has shared their interest in learning how to cook.
At fourteen years old, Chef Z has already cemented his career in the cooking industry. While there have been more than a handful of teenage prodigies making the waves in the online communities, Chef Z has established himself as the real deal. “There are a lot of other teen chefs out there, but most of them have their parents doing all of the work behind the scenes,” he explained, “I am a complete one-man-show. I am self-taught, and no one forces me to do this. I do it all on my own.”
With his future career already set in stone, Zachary Moskowitz has set his sights on growing in his practice. He foresees opening a bakery in either the New York, Dallas, or Los Angeles area.
