Head Chef Jobs
A Head Chef may perform the following tasks:
In larger establishments, the chef de cuisine or head chef generally does more supervision than cooking. Senior chefs have to attend staff meetings, where they discuss problems related to their areas, and receive or issue instructions to other managerial staff. In small restaurants, the head chef may prepare food, assisted by other cooks or apprentices. As well as expert cooking knowledge, chefs involved in supervision need a general knowledge of the skills and activities of all their workers.
The range of duties carried out by head chefs will vary depending on where they work. Head chefs may be required to work shifts, including weekends and public holidays. The work may be stressful, especially at peak hours of the day.
