Executive Chef

The core competencies of executive chefs are leadership, management, and planning. For the post of an executive chef, employers prefer candidates having prior experience with control food and labor cost, demonstration cooking, menu development, and pricing and development of culinary team. Premise and liability accountability and contract-managed service experience are also desirable. Applicants will be interested in knowing that to succeed in the role of an executive chef, they should be able to manage in a diverse environment with focus on client and customer services.

Executive chefs directly supervise kitchen personnel with responsibility for hiring, discipline, performance reviews, and initiating pay increases and they typically report to a food service director. The responsibilities of an executive chef include: training and managing kitchen personnel and supervising/coordinating all related culinary activities; estimating food consumption and requisitioning or purchasing food; selecting and developing recipes; standardizing production recipes to ensure consistent quality; establishing presentation technique and quality standards; planning and pricing menus; ensuring proper equipment operation/maintenance; and ensuring proper safety and sanitation in kitchen.

The executive chef may cook selected items or cook for select occasions. He/she may oversee special catering events and may also offer culinary instruction and/or demonstrate culinary techniques.
