Kitchen chefs prepare foods for other people. They work in both the private and public sectors. When kitchen chefs work in the private sector, they often work for restaurants, entertainment venues, cruise ships and large corporations. Kitchen chefs are also needed in the public sector, including schools and other institutions. They sometimes plan meals and menus, and often supervise kitchen assistants, waiters and hostesses. Many chefs are employed by the owners of the venue where they work, and some of them own the restaurants themselves.
