When I worked in culinary, my day started out with prepping everything I needed for service. From chopping and prepping all materials and raw ingredients for meal service, to make sure all my equipment and tools I need are working properly for example shape knives, gas burners are working, detergent in the dishwashers, cold storage within range, raw ingredients all ordered etc. I also have meetings with my teams and communicate with them about the plans for meal services, if there are any concerns and making sure my team is ready for service as I am.
