I got a job offer at a new 450-seats restaurant opening like under a month as a pastry/ prep cook... It basically a casual high end restaurant, make stuffs in house.
I applied to pastry cook at first but they don't need a full time pastry cook because their dessert menu is small like 4 items. The items are chocolate cake, bread pudding, cheesecake and ice cream/sorbet.
They said they might ask me to add a couple items with my own recipes which I assumed the chefs aren't good on pastry. But in a way I don't want to lend my recipes because I want to open my own pastry shop in the future and can't have two places serving the same items.
This is my first restaurant job as a pastry cook because my only experiences are in bakery/pastry shop environments. So I assumed restaurant desserts are somewhat different from pastry/bakery shop items since restaurant are more sit down type.
I want to ask you... What desserts are more suitable for restaurant than in a pastry shop? Also it can make large amount of servings, easy and quick recipe to make since it a 450 seats restaurant :S... So that way it less likely that I will not use those desserts in my future pastry shop.
