Throughout October Chef Network will run a series of regional Round Table events to develop their Better Kitchen Workplace Charter, aimed at creating a set of peer-led guidelines that both employers and chefs themselves can follow to improve working life in the kitchen.
This work will culminate in a Kitchen Culture seminar for chefs, employers, suppliers and media in November, an event which will look at ways that we can make the industry a better place to train and work, but also explore the opportunities available to chefs and promote the profession.
Throughout the year, ChefNetwork.ie is sharing practical tips and blogposts from chefs on wellness in the industry and hosting regular monthly discussions on current topics, encouraging chefs to share ideas and learnings with each other on themes like reducing plastic use, food waste, food fraud to kitchen leadership. Training courses from Chef Network Skillnet this Autumn, available at a subsidised rate to members, include Leading & Managing People (QQI accredited), Cost Management & Profit, and Wellness at Work, as well as a range of culinary topics.
