Hire a Chef de Partie

A Chef de Partie, also known as a "station chef" or "line cook," is in charge of a particular area of production. In large kitchens, each station chef might have several cooks and/or assistants. In most kitchens, however, the station chef is the only worker in that department. Line cooks are often divided into a hierarchy of their own, starting with "first cook," then "second cook," and so on as needed.

A qualified Chef de Partie candidate will:

• Demonstrate expertise in a particular area of food preparation.

• Demonstrate sufficient training or experience in the role.

• Manage and organize the ingredients and tools necessary for expert preparation.

• Verify the quality of ingredients prior to preparation, making adjustments when necessary.

• Demonstrate knowledge of food safety and storage techniques.

• Demonstrate knowledge of allergies, diets, nutrition and regional cuisines.
An energetic attitude and the willingness to take direction are essential for success in this role.
