Chef de Partie Level Three Apprenticeship
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 the dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and ordery. However, in smaller kitchens a chef de partie may work independently as the only persion 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.
