Do you use a prep lists at work? A chef said something that I thought was quite strange. He moaned at me for using a prep list. Said I should know the prep I have to do. See when I started where I work I went through the menu so I knew exactly what I needed.I keep a copy on my computer and print a copy of and put a mark next to what I have to do when I go into work. It is quite a meticulous list it has things on it that don't actually need to be prepared like piccalilli but it is just a reminder to get them over ready. There are 53 things on the list so it's actually a lot of things to remember.(although a lo of them are very small jobs) Seems like a bit of a daft thing to say actually.
