New Student/Prep Cook

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello. I am currently enrolled in culinary school and just started 6 weeks ago. I am lucky and grateful enough to have landed a part time job as a prep cook in a good restaurant/kitchen. I have no prior experience and got the opportunity by doing a stage/trail after my first interview. I just started my first day as a prep and I am loving it. Does anyone have any good/great advice as far as how to be faster and more efficient? My speed and skills are very slow at the moment and I want to strive for excellence in everything I do. While I am showing the utmost enthusiasm and being a go get-tar, I could use some advice on how to become faster in a short amount of time, so that I can get the job done right in the least amount of time. So if anyone has any advice in general on being successful as a prep cook and how to eventually move up when the time is right, I would highly appreciate it. Thank you.

You get faster thru practice. We all have our own learning curve but it is best to focus on being correct and let the speed come with time. Make accurate cuts, keep your fingers and thumb out of the way and be patient. Speed will come. I have said it before, speed without accuratecy is slop. Better tl have good work than fast slop.
