REGULARS AND RESERVE ARMY CHEFS WORK SIDE BY SIDE
An Army chef is responsible for planning and preparing three meals a day for their soldiers. Army chefs are schooled from day 1 of training to prepare and cook healthy nutritious meals.
The job involves monitoring the levels of food, organising storage, ordering new supplies, planning meal patterns, preparation and cooking, and serving meals. Army chefs will work in a team in order to cater for the high number of soldiers that need feeding.
The working environment is largely dependent on where you be based. The army travels a lot and Army chefs can be working in a well equipped kitchen or could be out in the field cooking in make-shift tented kitchens with food rations. The job requires a great deal of travel and working hours vary considerably depending on shift patterns. Watch the video below to get a better understanding of what Army chefs do.
