I think I did ok, I know I missed a question about duck confit and at least one math question, (probably more - come on! It's math!)
But the most interesting question came on the back page. It was a "what would you do if...." question.
I don't feel bad about publishing it here because a) no one from school reads this blog and b) I found out post-exam that an alumni at one of the restaurants we observe at already filled 2 people in on this question weeks ago!
Here it is -
You work in a kitchen where the ovens are not working. But the cook-top is working and you have access to all the equipment and tools in the kitchen. You only have a 10 pound turkey and 2.5 tablespoons of oil. In 2.5 hours, how will you cook this turkey?
Note - the skin must be crispy!
Think on it - correct answer, (and my answer) tomorrow!
