    I started a new job last week in a 4star hotel with 1AA Rosette. .. nothing new, 3 years ago I was working in the same kind of hotel.

    before, i never had to make hollandaise sauce on my section either until now. ..  I walk in to find the sous chef has put Ham Hock Terrine with Asparagus, Tomato jelly, watercress, and hollandaise sauce as a special on the menu. 

    I know the ingredients, the general method and process of making the hollandaise, but never really put it into essential practice before. 

    good to say that i sufficed and made hollandaise both shifts without it splitting. quite proud of the fact too.

    You could eat the most awsome and complex food, and still go back and get enjoyment from garnishing your breakfast with a simple hollandaise.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/licklips.gif
