Kitchen Stewards are responsible for maintaining high levels of cleanliness and organization within a kitchen. They perform a variety of tasks in order to do so, and are necessary to the success of any culinary establishment. Kitchen Stewards may also be involved in receiving and stocking processes. This job has moved from being a chef’s responsibility to a separate branch. A kitchen steward would be responsible for cleaning and establishing dishes, taking stock of inventory, maintaining hygiene and quality in the kitchen, keeping a tab on breakage and replacements.
