Chefs work as part of a team in challenging and often fast-paced kitchen environments, for example, schools, hospitals, the armed forces, care homes, high street casual dining, cafés or pub kitchens. They are likely to work with centrally developed standardised recipes and menus, producing food often in high volumes. They apply highly methodical organisational skills, energy, accuracy, attention to detail and are mindful of the importance of sustainability and protecting the environment.
