Does Anyone Know Why?
Today I was portioning out french fries , sweet potato fries and prepping bacon. Now I know they want you to work in the kitchen during your training but does doing what I did today get me any closer to knowing what was on the menu?
Expo okay I get it. You see the finished product come out on the pass and what the sides are and all that that go with the dish. That I can understand. But unless you are going to be working in the kitchen , portioning out french fries does little if anything to prepare you for knowing the menu.
Besides since I have worked in corporate restaurants I have never seen a cook do a shift as a waiter. Think about that one....
Anyway other than that my first day went great!
