What do chefs do other than simply cook food?

    I've been involved on a food safety project lately with non caterers
    who are making decisions about what chefs should do but at the same time have absolutely no idea of their range of skills, duties and responsibilities.

    Apart fom menu planning, business forecasting, health and safety... what else?

    Thanks

    these days play on the internet.
    seems to be a decent way to spend the quiet time of day.
    sadly also staff councilling,staff training,meeting suppliers and filling out endless new pieces of paper for the HR dept.

    what ever happened to the days of chatting up waitresses,shouting at commie chefs and frightening the admin staff.

    chefs often find themselves as de facto ast f&b managers these days as well.
