TIPS & TRICKS
- Stand as calmly as possible in front of your guests (firm posture, grounded)
- Ensure an easy, relaxed body posture
- The more organised your workplace is, the calmer and more confident you will be
- Look your guest in the eye – even when portioning! Please note that eye contact creates a bond!
- When you start a front cooking career: Breathe out to release tension; you’ll resume your natural breathing cycle automatically when you breathe in again.
- You need room for hand movements and gestures to ensure a lively, dynamic presence.
- Do not move your hands about unnecessarily. Do not play around with objects or latch onto them – this applies pressure onto the nerve ends on your fingertips, causing greater tension.
- Ensure you use serene gestures. This will transmit a calm feeling to both you and your diners.
- Make lively, natural facial expressions and gestures whenever you speak!
- Don’t focus on your nervousness – concentrate on your guests or the people eating!
Tips & Tricks
- It’s convenient to use a highly heat-resistant, coated griddle foil for flat and deep griddle table-top units. The griddle surface can then be kept clean very easily and the whole system becomes considerably less dirty.
- If you use griddle foil, you can prepare slices of baguette with grated cheese without leaving any mess on the griddle plate.
- You can make good use of the free space either side of the table-top units if you organise the required accessories such as Gastronorm containers, salt and pepper mills, and oil dispensers efficiently.
- Always put your implements such as ladles, knives and tongs back in the same position. This saves time and looks professional when handling equipment.
- Adapt the station décor to the theme of the day. It’ll pique people’s interest.
- Ensure the components are placed in the right position if you use a multi-element.
