Through History and human civilization, Cuisine keeps growing and takes an
important position in our society. The food remains the basic demand of human
being. In today's world more than ever, Cuisine can be seen as the manifestation of
culture. In fact, with Globalization, Cuisine has become an important stereotype to
understand and reinforce the different culture.
Meanwhile, after thousands of year’s improvement, we can see t
hat Cuisine has also
its own specific culture. The way of cooking, the management style in the kitchen,
chief selections, innovative dishes etc. All these things separate the Cuisine from the
culture of other industries. In this thesis, we want to analyze and research what kind
of leadership style can be found in the culinary field.
By interviewing chefs and employees in the Cuisine industry, we find out some
behaviours or leadership styles in the Cuisine culture which are based on the certain
work environment in the Cuisine industry. We interpreted them according to the
existed theories of leadership to have deeper insight and understanding.
With our research, we focus on the strict management style in the Cuisine industry
and how can it be successful. We believe our research will inspire other businesses
which face similar challenges as the Cuisine industry.
