Morning,
I have an interview very shortly for a Chef Apprenticeship and I was wondering if anyone on here has done or is currently in Chef Apprentice training? If there is anyone, could they give me a run down of what is in training and also is there basic training? I.e. Drill etc...

First week... preparation of 'Nine O'clockers':

Hard boil 50 eggs for at least 2 hours, so the whites turn a marbled purple and the shells have burst open.
Turn out on a tray.
Re-warm yesterday's buns.
Turn out on the tray.
Deep freeze two pats of butter to 0 degrees Kelvin.
Arrange on tray.
Break open a box of NAAFI biscuits, ignoring the sell by date and handsomely beat with a rolling pin.
Pour on tray.
Enjoy...

@dapperdunn will now take you through week 2. :)

I think you'll find that's RN routines(circa1967) not RFA @dhobyitch :)

I was an RPO (Reactor Panel Operator) and used to adjust the temperature of the water in the reactor, or kettle as it's colloquially known...does that count?
