Culinary Supervisory Management
Among all other things (fancy cook, creative artist, flavor conductor, menu planner, etc.), the modern Chef is also expected to be a human resource specialist. And in taking on this role, the Chef is now responsible for having well-honed supervisory skills. The modern kitchen has become a very complex place, and requires a new level of awareness and personnel management that stretches beyond traditional culinary skills. The main objective of this course is to provide you with the critical information you need in order to learn the traits needed to manage today's kitchen(s), making yourself even more valuable to your organization and employees as well.

Culinary Supervisory Management Refresher
Experienced chef managers will be the first to tell you that locating and hiring quality employees is perhaps the most challenging aspect of managing a modern kitchen. Competition for qualified labor is intense, and the demand for employees continues to outpace the supply of interested and qualified applicants. For those chef managers forced to deal with the revolving door of high employee turnover, the outlook is particularly grim. But employee selection is simply the first step. In order for the food service operation to be successful, the chef manager must create a positive work environment where well-trained, carefully selected employees are motivated to provide the exceptional food and service that today's dining customers demand. This seemingly difficult task is accomplished through effective management and supervision.

Curriculum Development
Often times, the theoretical nature of this area of study can make the subject matter feel a bit heavy. We will present you with material that "breathes" by way of its applicability to the curriculum you are developing or teaching at your school or college. To shake off the feeling of being talked at (or even worse, lectured to), we have included many projects for hands-on application. After all, this is where the learning and usefulness of the presented material will benefit you most.
