Cook - Very hard work, and only pays well for a successful few. There are plenty of low-pay jobs to choose from while you work your way up.

Programmer - Pays well, except when you're between jobs. Save during flush times. You need to be a tinkerer, constantly learning. Your most useful skills will be self-taught. If you rely on your formal schooling to do your job, you will not get far.

Accountant - Pays well and very stable. But dull, unless you're excited by spreadsheets. You can learn most of what you need to know in school. Keeping up with new laws is comparatively easy. The math and economics you learn during your education should be the hardest part.

I guess the question is, how much stability do you want? How curious and independent are you? How much is it worth to you to work on your feet in a hot kitchen?

Choose what you like, something that you excel in. Or something you're interested in. Don't choose it by who makes the most money. But a programmer makes the most and kinda takes more discipline.

Why not do them all? You can program on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Cook in the fancy restaurant (you own), for lunches and evenings Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. After cooking, you can spend a couple hours doing the accounting/books for your fancy restaurant. You can, "Have your cake and eat it too." You might not have much of a social life; but, you will have a lot of money. :) Good Luck.
