Market-Fresh Cooking

Cooks prepare charcuteries, baked goods, international dishes, local dishes and desserts. They use new food technology equipment and finish the mise en place before service. As part of their duties, they may be required to estimate food requirements and manage inventory. Market-fresh cooking is a creative field that requires manual skills and attention to detail. A job as a cook is suitable for people who like to work in a team and who can work and thrive under pressure.
