Large restaurants and food service establishments tend to have varied menus and large kitchen staffs. Teams of restaurant cooks, sometimes called assistant or line cooks, work at assigned stations equipped with the necessary types of stoves, grills, pans, and ingredients. Cook job titles often reflect the principal ingredient cooks prepare or the type of cooking they do; for example: vegetable cook, fry cook, or grill cook. Cooks usually work under the direction or supervision of chefs, head cooks, or food service managers.
