Kitchen work and chefs
The heart of the hotel is the kitchen. Guests who patronize these hotels would visit them for various reasons, for locality, comfort, pricing and even for the food that is served and presented to them. Also there are some who visit these hotels for the purpose of having a meal or snack. Whatever the case maybe, the kitchen plays an important role for the existence and sustenance of the hotel.

Working in a hotel kitchen could be interesting, tiring, challenging and even exciting. With all the modern technology and gadgetry, these kitchens have turned out be somewhat high tech and more convenient. Some kitchens in luxurious hotels are so well equipped and maintained, with freezer rooms, to separate kitchens for the preparation of cakes, bread and pastry. With all the novel stoves, ovens and microwaves it is indeed a fantastic place to work in and a wonderful experience. Depending on size and class of the hotel, the kitchen staff may vary. Most of the top hotels have an Executive Chef and working under him there are different categories of chefs. They are Chef de Cuisine, Chef de Partie, Demi Chef, Commis Chef, Sous Chef etc. The duties of these chefs will vary from one to another. The Executive Chef or the Head Chef generally will oversee and supervise the department, and will instruct them accordingly as to what the duties for the day are. They are also responsible in all matters pertaining to the department, such as leave, attending to personal issues, attending board meetings and scheduling the work to each staff member. They are expected to work on shift basis as a hotel function 24-7.

Not only preparation, the presentation of the food is also equally important. An expected attribute of a chef is creativity and novelty. They are responsible from the start of the preparation of the food to the final presentation. They are expected to present the food to the guest in a manner that is appealing. Most of the elite hotels are continuously trying to improvise ways and means to allure guest to their hotels by having food fares and promotions. This has been a successful way earning revenue and is patronized by many guests for food experiences. Being creative could help a chef to present a meal in the most appetizing way, thus winning the heart of the customer.

Good communication skills are important to be successful in your mission. While constant training of the staff is done by the Executive Chefs, they are also expected at times to speak to guests and attend to some special need. Cleanliness and good hygiene is maintained at all times, it is said that the standard of the hotel could be judged by its kitchen.
