Cook-Restaurant: Coming Soon!
Cooks work in restaurants and cafeterias and are responsible for preparing and cooking various appetizers, entrees, and desserts.
Before preparing and cooking food, cooks need to ensure the ingredients are fresh, the work area is clean, and the needed equipment is available. Cooks follow recipes, mix ingredients, and prepare various types of foods using various cooking methods, such as braising, steaming, baking, and broiling. Many hours spent standing are required, and a certain amount of stress is involved with the need to work quickly, yet efficiently.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), cooks can earn an average salary of $28,240 per year as of May 2015.
