I began my career as Chef de Partie before moving up the ranks. Within the food industry this is recognised as a very important position.It is often referred to as a station chef or line cook. The Chef de Partie is responsible for running a specific part of the kitchen such as pastry, butchery, fish, sauces, or vegetables.
A career in the food industry can be a challenging and very rewarding position that pays well and keeps you in the hub of all the latest food trends. For many in this position, no two days are ever the same. A Chef de Partie can be a life-long career for some individuals, or the position can be viewed as a career stepping stone in order to climb the ranks in the restaurant industry.
