I agree with the above 100%, Im not sure what you school(assuming you went to some kind of culinary school) told you about working it kitchens, Its demanding, hot, stressful.  Tempers can flair and remember the Chef is ALWAYS right.  If you graduated from culinary school about i belive is somewhere around 75% of all culinary school graduates done work in the restaurant/hospitatlity field 5 years after graduation.  Its not cut out for everyone, Its gut check time, leave...
Iv made it with 2 parts creme fraice 1 part egg yolk and make just like a normal holandaise or bernaise.   After its made you can cool it down in a refrigerater to use later and almost heat to order if your cooks are semi decent.  Iv used this for partys and its better than the canned crap but doest break as easy as regular bernaise.  Good luck.
What does everyone where for interview for chefs positions?  Just wondering, i alway felt awkward in shirt and tie but almost to causal in khakis and a polo.

Almost any japanese knife will be better that german stuff.  Tojiro is a great place to start, the only thing i dont like about them is that they are clad and can have a weird feel to it.  The other recomodation would be go with a 240 gyuto.  Check out the knife section here you will probally get more responses from it. 
If its all beef i would definitly do a carpacio or raw type course, for me some kind of braised short ribs would be a must for me. I would think an all beef tasting would be verying heavy, But thats just me.
What cut do you use for roast beef?   I use clod hearts, Bottom rounds, Top Rounds, Never been satisfied with any of them.   Just wonder what everyone uses?
  The Restaurnat is in a reirement home with independent living, i like the idea but i know lamb isnt one of ther favorites, I might give it a whirl anyways though.  Thanks Adam
