What makes a great chef de partie?

Be organised

Being a chef de partie requires more than the ability to cook, it also requires excellent preparation and organisational skills. Chef de parties may be required to lead and train several team members, master the dishes in their speciality and keep on top of food preparation. Kitchens can be a stressful place to be, so organisation and delegation are key to a successful kitchen.

Be a team player

Part of being a chef de partie is about also being a team player. If the work is piling up on a team member and you can help out without affecting your own duties then be sure to offer your assistance. They’ll really appreciate the help and your support won’t be easily forgotten.

Be friendly

It can be daunting joining a tight knit workforce especially in the kitchen, but building relationships and not taking things personally in a heated kitchen are essential to the role. A good working attitude can lead to more shifts.
