Course Overview

A Chef de Partie is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen. This type of chef usually manages a small team of workers, which they must keep organised so that dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens a Chef de Partie may work independently as the only person in their section. Also known as a station or section chef, the Chef de Partie reports to the senior chef and has a very important role in any kitchen.

Students will learn about running a specific section of a professional kitchen. For example, sauces, pastries or fish.
