I am in line to be accepted for a position at a nearby hotel as a banquet cook. The chef is requiring me to cook for him. I realize this is good practice on his part and agree with it completely (just good business). I will be give a mystery protein and use of the entire cooler and pantry. My question is: What is the best way to prepare for this task. While the job offer is pretty much set (so long as I don't burn down the guy's kitchen), my wage will be dependent on how I perform. So obviously I want to do my best and impress as much as possible. I have kitchen experience, and recently graduated culinary school (I know, another one of them). Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
