Being a sous chef I have had to deal with many highly stressful situations. However it has just come to my attention that next week a bunch of kids are going to be walking around all over the back house and dining room as part of a field trip. I recently found out that the executive chef volunteered me to give the tour of the kitchen (on my day off of course). I wanted to know if anyone here has experience with this sort of thing and what I should do/talk about. I get the feeling that they are either going to be elementary or middle school students.
Seeking some unconventional advice
Is the tour going to be during business hours?
Are you allowed to make something for the kids?
Does your restaurant have any cheap paper chef hats, pens, or stationary that can be given as souvenirs?
How long will you have them there?
Which cuisine do you serve there?
Will you be giving the tour alone?
