Assistant chefs are lead chefs in the making. They possess deep knowledge of food preparation activities, ingredients and food combinations and use this knowledge to assist the chef in preparing exceptional meals. The main duty of an assistant chef is to make sure that all ingredients are available for the chef so that he can cook without any hindrances or delays. The culinary world depends highly on customer satisfaction so it is important to do everything on time and assistant chefs make sure it does.
Typically, assistant chefs ensure clean cooking utensils, chopped ingredients and clean work areas so that the chef can get right down to work. Another part of their work is to make sure that order plates are aesthetically arranged and that the portions are accurate.
To work at this position, one has to possess exceptional culinary insight. Knowledge of standard food preparation and storage techniques are considered a plus point and the ability to work in a high volume environment (restaurants are usually busy places) is a plus point.
