This is according to new research carried out by YouGov and commissioned by the Hospitality Guild, which found that one-in-three 16 to 24 year olds and 30 per cent of unemployed individuals are eager to be given this opportunity.
Of those who expressed their desire to be employed at an Asian or Oriental restaurant, 36 per cent of respondents believe that this part of the food industry would make for a fun working environment.
Cyrus Todiwala OBE, founder of Cafe Spice Namaste, agrees with this impression, noting: "I have been in it for several decades and still absolutely enjoy every single minute of it."
However, YouGov's research went on to reveal that a new apprenticeship scheme to train chefs in Asian and Oriental cuisine is still yet to be fully subscribed.
Suzy Jackson, executive director of the Hospitality Guild, commented: "It's encouraging to see that a third of young people would consider a career within Asian and Oriental cuisine but we need to collectively work together to reach them and explain the fantastic opportunities available to help people find worthwhile jobs."
