What does a typical day as a Jr. Sous Chef include?
I get in, and I make sure that all my bases are covered as far as prep let’s go as far as menu planning, making sure the night before prepped our stuff and when the cooks come making sure they’re in a positive attitude and ready to work. I’m very big on making sure they know that it’s about there art as well, you know like shirts or menus but at the end of the day they’re the artist creating that food.
