What does a typical day as a Sous Chef include?

It’s just high paced and everything’s batch cook, so everything needs to be prepped out everything needs to look great everything needs to be pretty much plated within our own serving vessel, if anyone needs help I step in, grilling, cutting meats, whatever needs to be done for that day.

What is the best part about being a Flagship Sous Chef?

The opportunity to grow from within further my knowledge and also spread my knowledge from what I’ve already learned to people that don’t have the same experiences that I’ve had in the past. I get to teach cutting skills, cooking concepts, techniques, classical French cooking, things that I’ve worked with in the past that they probably haven’t had the luxury of doing.
