Job Description

Most chefs start their careers as apprentice chefs, a position that is necessary to becoming a good chef eventually. As apprentices, they learn tricks of the trade and are guided to work with bigger quantities of food and a variety of ingredients. While training under a full time experienced chef, apprentice chefs learn much about the food service business along with being trained in making entrees and desserts.

To work as an apprentice chef, one must be passionate about food and all that it stands for. Some knowledge of the food service industry can go a long way in helping you understand how it works in the real world; chefs usually prefer hiring apprentices who show initiative and curiosity. While working as an apprentice chef, people learn much; this knowledge can prove to be invaluable to them when they work as chefs later on.

So what do apprentice chefs really do apart from learning the trade


  • Learn different procedures of food preparation
  • Prepare ingredients for dishes upon the instructions of chefs
  • Assist in operating commercial cooking equipment such as stoves, cookers, ovens and fryers
