    Hello,

    I have a stage interview at a very high-end hotel.  I have to create 3 dishes in 2 hours.  I know what I want to make and have practiced plating it up many times and sold it as a special at my current job.  My question is what do you look for  when a potential employee makes you a dish?  I'm a bit nervous that I wont plate things up to the expectations I really want this job and am willing to learn and start form anywhere.  I do have 5 years experience cooking for Casual Dining hotels.

    I really dont think its time to second guess yourself. Play to your strengths. 

    I think any employer would like to see progress as your cooking, organization skills, as well as see technique. 

    I hate to be cheesy, but the employer would most likely also want to see "you on the plate".
