temp

About The Course

The Chef de Partie apprenticeship is for an individual who is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen, potentially working individually or managing a small team but overall responsibility for organising the preparation, cooking and service of dishes within that section.

Delivery method – weekly day release

Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. The ratio of face-to-face teaching in our college buildings to online teaching will vary from course to course, so more specific information will be provided to you at enrolment.

What Will I Study?

  • How to identify industry and food trends, customer preferences, seasonality, provenance and global environmental factors influence the development of dishes and menus
  • Understand the principles of food preparation and cooking; traditional and modern cuisine; taste; allergens; diet and nutrition to produce dishes and menu items that meet business and customer requirements
  • Know how to brief, coach and motivate others positively to deliver high quality dishes and menu items
  • Identify how the business strategy, customer profile, culture and constraints influence the development of creative, profitable and competitive menus
  • Recognise and understand legislative responsibilities and the importance of protecting peoples’ health, safety and security
  • Demonstrate a range of advanced craft preparation and cooking skills and techniques to develop and produce quality dishes and menu items in line with business requirements
  • Develop and use effective plans which reflect the most appropriate methods for maximising yield and minimising waste when producing quality dishes and menu items in line with business requirements
  • Prepare, cook and present food to agreed food safety practices and guidelines, ensuring a clean and hygienic kitchen environment is maintained at all times and food safety management procedures followed and recorded
  • Use effective methods of communication and operate in a fair and empathic manner that achieves the desired result and demonstrates a flexible customer centric culture
  • Risk assess situations, identifying and isolating matters of concern, by establishing the cause and intervening accordingly to minimise any risk to people and comply with legislation.

What Will I Need?

Employers will set their own entry requirements, related to the job role. A good level of English and maths, plus a Level 2 kitchen related qualification.

Delightful meal Visted for lunch today in Escoffier Room (held in Brasserie section on this occasion). Welcomed warmly by reception and students as usual. The Escoffier menu was outstanding. There was not a course you could fault. The compte brulee was my favourite - will try and duplicate this at home! Food was beautifully presented and superb. The students were effecient,friendly and helpful. Better than my birthday meal at a Michelen starred restaurant. Sadly not many customers due to covid however very safe set up so would encourage others to go. Amazing value for money.

The Vincent Rooms I had a very pleasant and relaxed 5 course meal with wine pairing. The food and wine were excellent, the staff are students at the college and are helpful and informative. For £60 it can’t be beat for value. A firm favourite.

Budding chef’s creations Delicious food created and served by students at Westminster Kingsway College. Six course tasting menu - wine and food - of very high quality and at a very reasonable price. The experience so enjoyable and good to encourage the young chefs who’ll be running our restaurants in due course.

Lovely lunch, hope to return soon We ate in the Escoffier and had the seafood menu with accompanying wines. All was very good and we enjoyed very much. To my personal taste : 1. the tomato consume added little to the seafood medley. 2. The crumble detracted from the sorbet. 3. The chocolate bavoirois would have benefitted from a contrasting flavour on the plate, eg citrus, ginger, or other fruit. Thank you and best wishes to all the students.

Fantastic menu and attentive service A lovely atmosphere with very attentive service, a seven course seafood themed menu. Each course was delicious, the dover sole being a particular delight. The price for a fine dining menu was excellent and well worth a visit, we will be returning and would highly recommend.
