Institutional Cook​


This is a job of preparation and assembly – something every kitchen needs to cook food efficiently and quickly. As an Institutional Cook, you will prepare meals in both small and large quantities using bulk-cooking methods. You will prepare food to meet individual dietary needs, including health, religious, ethnic preferences, and budgetary requirements. You may work in retirement or long-term care homes, hospitals, childcare centres, school dining areas, correctional facilities, and corporate environments. ​

In the kitchen, you will prepare, cook, and assemble food such as meats, salads and dressings, soups, sauces, sandwiches, vegetables, desserts, pastries, baked foods, hot and cold buffets and non-alcoholic beverages.
