Mexican chefs preparing a meal

A chef is a professional cook with the duties of running the kitchen, preparing menus, ordering materials, administration tasks and most importantly ensuring a quality product from the kitchen.

He is normally employed by a restaurant, Hotel or convention center, but may be employed as a personal chef by a private individual.

The Chef is an active supervisor who may perform certain tasks himself, such as preparing a specialty dish.

A chef may receive initial training from a specialist culinary institute or a Technical college or university program. Additional work experience provides the practical experience needed.

A chef in the United States may hold the Food Sanitation Certificate for the restaurant. The requirement varies by state.
