Quick Question...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Good evening to you all. I'm currently a demi chef de partie in a hotel in london. My head chef's set me a task and wants me to find out what a "tarde" is. Apparently its a food item. I've checked on several search engines and so far come up with zip to do with food. Could any of you fine people shed some light on this problem for me? I have a meeting with my chef on thursday and kinda wanna take him the info then if I can. Thanks people.:peace:

It seems as though he has sent you looking for the rice stretcher.

That's my guess, or late to the window, etc.

Tarde is Spanish for "later". Don't know what he's looking for as it has several applications. It can mean late afternoon or early evening (buenos tarde) or later on (mas tarde) or could, I suppose, refer to a dish that comes later in a multi course meal. Never heard it used, but I'd make up some B.S. to that effect and give it to him with a sraight face. (The tarde is the course served between the cheese and dessert. It originated in the the 13th century when the Duke of Earl's chef couldn't decide if he should serve this or that and so served both and called the one a "tarde", blah blah blah. He can't prove you made it up.

are you sure he didn't say tarte, as in tarte tatin? That might be what he's after....
