A Commis Chef is the most common starting position in many kitchens. A commis chef prepares food and carries out basic cooking tasks under the supervision of a more senior chef.
The primary objective of the Commis Chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic function in every section of the kitchen, and eventually to pick the section in which they feel the most inspired. The learning journey of any chef will vary considerably from one individual to the next; however, it is necessary to understand and have experience in the basics that this role provides in order to progress to any future senior chef role.
