    Kitchen Cutting Assessment

    One thing I really scared of is the lecturer not telling us in advance that on 'so-and-so' date got assessment.

    Such as today..

    Chef Tan: "Today I have good news for you guys, I'm gona test you guys on your cutting skills."

    Wonderful... =/



    We are given 20 min(ITS VERY SHORT!!) to complete the test, these were the areas Chef Tan tested us.

    1. Cut 1 carrot(minimize resource) into 2 different forms(maximize product output).



    • Julienne - "ju-lian" (3 marks)
    • Jardiniere - "jar-deen-air" (3 marks)
    2. Ciseler("see-sor-lair") the onion. (3 marks)


    This method reduces the "juice" that comes out from the onion when its being chopped,

    Therefore the cutting board will end up dry/semi-dry.


    3. Turning the potato. (3 marks)



    Carving the potato into a barrel shape so that it can roll on the pan during cooking proses.

    To prevent it from ending up like this.


    What happens when I "sau-te" non-barrel shaped potato =(

    And the test begins!

    The end result turns out to be worst then I expected.



    I din have time to turn my potato, my onion decided to "have an early break off", I forgotten how to cut the carrot at start. @.@

    My
    "ju-lian" size not consistent and it could be cut into even thinner slice.

    2 marks out of 3

    My
    "jar-din-air" on the other hand, looked retarded and not uniformed.

    Because I produce it using MelzKC's chopping style instead of the right cutting method.


    2 marks out of 3

    Talk about my onion! I feel very tulan-ted ok!

    I freaking slice that shit and it decided to break up before the appointed time!

    To make things worst, some broke up into big pieces instead of small ones! >:@

    Jeff(and other too I think) manage to pull it off by using traditional "Chinese chopping style", lucky la you!

    I should have done that too. =(


    1 mark out of 3

    Thats why my product output so little.

    Where are the other parts you asked?

    Neh...



    My potato the best, besides peeling the skin, I din manage to do anything to it.


    1 mark out of 3

    What a tragedy, but Chef Tan was kind enough to give us all who never even turn the potato 1 mark instead of 0.

    Maybe because we peeled the skin. =D

    Grand total: 6/12 (Will be converted into 30%, means I will only get 15% marks!) T.T


    The remains...

    I hope I'll never screw up my future assessment, if not I'm a dead man for sure.

    Anything to say or words of wisdom for share? =)
