Exciting day but mum’s freaked out too. Theory test for a whole chapter on Organising and Preparing Food – including poultry and meat quality, fish and seafood safety, precision cuts and so on! Of course, I am exaggerating. A lot of the theory contents are common sense stuff. Things that are familiar especially if one is always working with food and in the kitchen. It doesn’t matter if it’s a home kitchen and not in a commercial environment. The tell tale signs of a good cook includes familiarity with the tools, ingredients, the cooking process and overall organisation and preparation techniques. But still, tests make me quiver. Just like a job interview. Or waiting for a cake to bake. And this cold and wet autumn weather isn’t helping. Bbbbrrrr.
