Chef De Partie Apprenticeships in Devon & Cornwall

A chef de partie (also known as a section chef) reports to the senior chef. In a large kitchen, the chef de partie usually manages a small team of workers. They must keep the team organised so that dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens, they may work independently as the only person in their section.

A chef de partie apprenticeship will give you the skills to run a section of a kitchen. This could be the fish section, the grill, sautéing or on vegetables.
