I am currently trying to make the jump from the huge corporate restaurant biz into a smaller finer dining establishment. No more kitchen managers, real chefs. I have a stage on Monday and am curious what to expect. Im guessing I'll show I can follow recipes and use knives, but is there anything else I should be aware of?

talk about the way you did things at all your other places, people in fine dining kitchens like to hear about all different ways of doing things.

Come back and report how it went. I'm interested in how these interviews go.

I also recommend asking them intelligent questions. Find out more about them, from them. Make sure you can learn something, and grow.

I recommend keeping your friggin mouth shut, and busting ass in synchronicity with your new team.

You will sink or float. Quickly. You've got it, or you don't. This rhetoric is pointless.

Thanks, everyone, for the advice and the old post.

Melampus, you are one of the most fascinating people I've ever come across.

JM85 <> Glory's only fleeting... already gone.

Those are the first words I hear after reading your presumably complimentary comment.

Then my world stops... for a moment of stillness. Is this internal silence silent? Is this a momentary realization of Zen? Is this conscious meditation? I think about my place... my existence.. my corporeal reality. In space... in mind.. in spirit.

I am constantly reminded & currently confronted by the hate & rage in which inhabits me. I have learned it is incomprehensible to the vast majority. Retrospectively... introspectively.. in the past, in the present, and in the presumable future, I see how it is/has been/can be my fuel, my motivation, my satisfaction. It is my being... it must be me.. right.?! It is the only constant I've ever known, the only constant I have ever had control over, the only constant I've ever had of my own.

Be not confused, this existential expose` is a spontaneously internal discovery in confused disgust as opposed to what might be perceived as machismo. I sometimes [more often than not] realize freeze-frames of thought whereas I attempt, or later attempt, to envision how humans interpret my articulations. I can see how one might find them fascinating, as you phrase it.

I'm glad to fascinate you, or rather, I feel something in which I imagine to be "glad". I don't know. This is my second writing of this text. I am fighting to type my stream of consciousness as it fades @05:23 EST after losing my first iteration typed into the cell phone I am relegated to using being out-of-state & w/o my computer nor tablet. Whatever... it is what it is.. and work is just around the corner

I wish you luck in your venture. IMO... shut your mouth.. prove your worth.

~ please excuse spelling & brevity as I am working via cell phone connectivity ~

Does staging imply a hands on interview + demonstration in the restaurant world?
