Chefs Resources Staff Video Tutorial Library for Corporate Members
Welcome to Chefs Resources exclusive video library geared towards providing Chef’s with a way to give consistent training about basic kitchen philosophies to all your cooks, sous chefs, kitchen managers, and lead line cooks. We know that time is money and there are only so many hours in a day. That’s why we created this video library for Chefs, with the goal of making it easier for you to train your staff without having to be present. You can now focus on other tasks while your crew learns basic kitchen philosophies & practices from our videos.
Use them as part of your regular training for every new crewmember, or as a refresher for long-time staff. And since they are business oriented tutorials they may be something which your company will pay for the $25 monthly subscription fee, rather than coming out of your own pocket.
If you choose to have a group of your staff watch any of the videos then consider having you or your sous chef pause the video on key points to have further discussion and answer questions about whatever principal is being presented. This will involve your crew in the presentation and get them thinking about it. There are suggested discussion topics on most of these and a PDF downloadable version of the presentation.
Also I highly recommend banning them from using their phones during the video tutorials! They are getting paid for training, not to play on their phones during a training video!
We hope that you find these tutorials useful for your operation. Simply click on the green “Watch Video” button for the video you want your team to watch. It will open a separate page with that exclusive content on it. I recommend opening the video in it’s own full-screen window and starting it when your team is ready.
If you want a specific topic covered in a future video, leave your suggestions in the comment section below.
Note: This page only shows what is available to Corporate Subscribers.
