Catering JobsWorking In The Catering Business
Today, the catering business is worth an estimated $6 billion and it is expected to grow in the future. With this in mind, you can assume that there will be a lot of opportunities available for those who want to work in this industry. These opportunities will be open to everyone of every age, especially of those who are seeking part time employment. Herein students and homemakers are especially well suited for such positions. Some of the various jobs that will be available include those for chefs, cooks, wait staff and food prep workers. If you would like to have one of these jobs, then it is important to understand what the different people who are a part of the catering staff are responsible for.
Food preparation workers are the people who are responsible for preparing the ingredients that the chefs and cooks need to use in preparing their dishes. These people will peel and slice fruits and vegetables; cut up meat, poultry and fish; and measure and weigh ingredients. They also clean the dishes, work areas and any equipment that is used in cooking.
Chefs and cooks are responsible for putting together the actual recipes. Oftentimes they will also help to plan out the menu that is being offered for the event that is being catered. The chef must also oversee all of the kitchen's operations and ensure that everything is running smoothly and on schedule. They must also make sure that the kitchen is properly stocked with all of the ingredients and supplies they need and properly staffed as well.
The wait staff are those who serve the food to the guests who are in attendance. They are also responsible for making sure that the wine and water glasses remain filled.
Another way of viewing this is that the chef is the "director" of operations in the kitchen. This means that the food prep workers are responsible for making sure that the chef can do a good job. In turn, the wait staff is responsible for making sure that all of the guests are served promptly and then remain happy and satisfied throughout their meal.
Clearly you can understand the importance of the role that each of the aforementioned people plays in the catering business. These people are from all age and ethnic groups.
