Chef-client periodically pulls Chef Server  to see if there are any changes in cookbooks or settings

If cookbooks or settings are changed then Chef server sends the latest configuration information to Chef-client, Chef-client applies those configuration changes to nodes

Updated Cookbooks and settings are pushed to Chef Server from workstation by using command line tool Knife
