I forgot to add garlic into the pork belly marinate (It has star anise, rock salt, rosemary, garlic and black peppercorns) I dont even know if you call this a marinate... but you know at work, we salt the pork belly overnight. I did that today but forgot to add the sliced garlic. Should I call up my boss tomorrow? I'd text her but I don't have her mobile.
I think I'm in trouble - please help
Don't worry about it great discoveries have been made by similar mistakes. Puff pastry it has been said was discovered by an apprentice who forgot to put in the butter for the dough he was making so he rolled it in.
Just tell your chef everyone makes mistakes.
Ditto, the fact that you care enough to be concerned about a mistake shows a lot about your character. I'd let you work on my line any day. Making mistakes is a healthy part of any learning process, the flaws start showing up only when you aren't honest about your mistakes. You did the right thing.
