The hotel industry has been identified as one of the fastest growing segments of the nation economy. The secret behind any successful food production operation is the division of the kitchen into various sections, establishing a system and following them assiduously. The Hotel School is one of the pioneer institutes which offer various Food Production Courses in Delhi, for hospitality students.

There are no set rules for deciding the sections and the staff to handle them. These will vary with different factors like a number of catering outlets, size of the menu, size of the establishment, planning of the kitchen and the management policy. In The Hotel School we train students according to the industries demand, we focus on the basic concept and train students according to their area of interest on which particular section he or she is good. This is the basic success mantra of our institute which provides various Food Production Courses in Delhi.

As food production course has become a subject of growing interest for the students so for those who want to make their career as a chef, a kitchen of a deluxe hotel should have the following sections.

Meat Processing Area – This section is responsible for all incoming meat and fish for quality and freshness, as well as to ensure portioning, packing, tagging and stacking various cuts and ensuring proper storage and racking.
