Thread Starter 

My fiancee is a chef and she is going in for her Red Seal test this week. I really don't know much about cooking only thing I know is I like her cookin'. Anyways I want to help her out as much as I can. Does anyone have any ideas for me?

 

Thank you

Is this no longer th professional chef forum?

 

Now we have people posting in this forum who "don't know much about cooking"

 

The moderating on this forum is horrible.

Maybe the mods take a little time off on Sunday, thus not sitting at their computers looking for a post you disapprove off. Just sayin.......

Curious.

When I took a line cooking job for a couple of years I changed my title here to Line Cook.

I actually took some flack from a former member because, as a line cook, I obviously didn't know as much as he did.

I continued to post in this section during that time.

Should I have refrained?

Why would you refrain from posting in a section specifically for people working in this industry? i.e. line cook, chef, etc.

 

It has nothing to do with knowing more than others, and everything to do with rules, IMO.

The thread was originally posted in the professional chef forum, then moved here, hence my comments in the thread.

Maybe I missed it somewhere in the mêlée, did anyone answer poor AJ’s question?

If she's taking the test this week, there's only so much you can do to support her. If she has a practice test , your can quiz her. Make life easy for her and stay out of her way while she's studying. If she's a working chef in Canada, she may have associates who have already taken the Cooks Red Seal test. Maybe get some insight from them if she hasn't already. 70% on a multiple choice test if I'm not mistaken to pass. She'll probably ace it.

what, answer a question when egos are at stake?

There should be a little red flag at the bottom of each post you can click to report a post to the moderator queue. It helps us out to use your eyes to resolve issues rather than bashing and pouncing on people.
