Abstract [en]

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.
