Chef - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (593 words)
Within a restaurant however, chef (French for chief or head) is often only used to refer to one person: the one in charge of everyone else in the kitchen.
The sous chef (pronounced "soo-shef" -- French for "under chef") is the direct assistant of the Executive Chef.
Larger kitchens often have more than one sous chef, with each having his or her own area of responsibility, such as the banquet sous chef, in charge of all banquets, or the executive sous chef, in charge of all other sous chefs.
