The duties of a chef and cook
A chef knows how to draw up interesting menus, buy the right ingredients cheaply, negotiate good delivery terms, and handle and store the goods professionally. This results in clearly calculable costs without major fluctuations, which are important when setting up and checking a budget when setting prices on the market or in a canteen kitchen or in a larger property. A chef can prepare a wide variety of dishes from different countries ? for example Italian, Fusion, Asian, German. And that even if he actually specializes in one type of cooking.
The chef cuts meat, prepares sauces, fillets fish, makes vegetables and salad or kneads dough. Finally, he decorates the finished dishes with different colored sauces, tasty greens or herbs.
Of course, the stock of ingredients must also be checked: sell-by dates are of course important. Spoiled goods must be disposed of, while fresh leftovers can be reused if possible. A cook must also know the hygiene regulations and apply them consistently.
In larger kitchens, as a team leader, a chef is able to organize the work processes perfectly together with his assistants. Because things are often very hectic here: In the hot kitchen air, many dishes often have to be prepared and garnished at the same time. Especially in catering, cooks must also be able to calculate food offers on the PC and suggest dishes for a specific price.
What advantages does a chef offer?
A good cook is adept at organizing workflows, preparing menus, and shopping for and preparing ingredients. Depending on demand, good cooks are able to put together a wide variety of dishes in a varied way. You can guide helpers and are able to prepare dishes at the right time in a tasty way.
Cooks order the right food or get it from the market or wholesale, check the quality and find out about delivery conditions. The purchased goods are professionally stored, prepared and cut.
What skills does a chef have?
A good cook is stress resistant. In a mostly very tight space, many meals with several courses often have to be completed with perfect timing. This includes handling machines such as deep fryers, microwave ovens, special cooking ovens and more. Auxiliary personnel must be instructed. This includes an immense quality awareness in order to present the kitchen as a business card and the most important social element of many institutions such as restaurants, hotels or even hospitals, canteens or care facilities as good to the customers with the available means.
Cooks require three years of vocational training, in which dealing with guests, hygiene, office organisation, advertising and sales promotion, but also how to prepare food is taught.
