Lead Cook/back Office

I am the cook for Sodexo at Pfizer in Kalamazoo. I am in charge of all aspects in the kitchen. I prepare two soups daily and rotate between a hot entree selection and an action station during the week. I make fresh bread and the occassional dessert. I am in charge of all ordering and doing a weekly inventory. I also help with training other employees, as needed, in the deli, salad bar, pizza station, grill, cashiering, and catering. For six months we were without a chef manager so I filled in by selecting the menus, preparing all recipes and productions logs. I have also been in charge of updating inventory pricing and ensuring daily standards of production are met.
