I am working as a short order cook right now, but as soon as my certification comes through, I will be a Journeyman. When I was at school this January we were talking about different kitchen positions and somebody said 'anyone can run a line, but not anyone can run the kitchen'. I understood that to mean that anyone can be a good line cook, but it takes more than being a good line cook to run the entire kitchen. What do you think ?.

Definitely. Running a kitchen involves managing people, delegating work, taking inventory, placing orders, checking in deliveries, rotating stock, keeping the kitchen up to health code, and taking responsibility for every plate that leaves the kitchen. And that's just the tip of the iceberg!
