What makes a great sous chef?
Being sous chef is more than just cooking up a storm in the kitchen, it’s also about being the second in command in terms of management. Sous chefs will need to lead a team of kitchen staff as well as get food out on time, in the absence of the head chef. Kitchens can be a stressful place to be, so organisation and delegation is key to a successful kitchen.
Be a team player
Part of being sous chef is 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.
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.
