I recently got slammed by a rush and I understand that 1 week of experiences obviously isn't enough for me to handle it alone but I want to think of a strategy to make up for my lack of experience. I work nights responsible for my own station where I do pans/woks/appetizers which I mostly do pasta ,curry,stir fry and panfry fish, and stuff in a deepfryer ( hotwings, yam fries). I got a total of 8 burners going (5 off) and a pot of boiling pot with 4 baskets for pasta and 2 deepfryers ( total of 4 baskets)It's hard to juggle both the deep fryer and pans at the same time and even harder to plate everything at the same time.I know this is a pretty vague description so I'm not asking you to design one for me but I just want some advice. What kind of strategies do you often see people do? Get most of the plating before they start cooking? when leaving the pan to do something else take it off to turn it low? try focus on the first 5 orders and start the other 5 later? I want to sacrifice as little time as possible(without burning!) but that right now is not possible with my skills , so I want to atleast work in an organized fashion.
