As I write this, I have already received my grade for this final, but I will tell you about it anyway... It was a black box team effort and we were required to produce a soup, a salad and a main with 1 protein, 1 starch and 2 veg on the main plate. The protiens offered to us were a whole chicken, a flank steak or a trout. We could choose to use one, two or all of the protein. We found out the ingredients at the beginning of the exam. This is what rachel and I produce.
1. Salad with Crispy element ~ Apple and Leek Salad with crispy carrot garnish and a thyme and red wine vinaigrette
2. Soup with Garnish ~ Aromatic Chicken Broth with Dumplings. Garnished with red pepper brunoise and Crisped parsley
3. Main Course ~ Stuffed Frenched Chicken Breast with Rosemary White wine pan sauce. Served with a wild rice, pear and red pepper pilaf, braised kale and glazed carrots.
I also had a written exam which was insanely easy.
Final score? 99/100
