The Chef Network Kitchen Charter

We also Subscribe to the Chef Network Kitchen Charter.  The Charter was created by chefs for chefs to encourage positive change in the kitchen. Based on 5 Principles, with key areas for action under each and examples from the chef community on how to achieve them, the charter provides guidelines that every individual kitchen can implement in a way that best suits their environment and their team.
