Crew Chef

I'm interviewing for a crew chef position and they want me to go and cook for them.

I'm a little unsure if i should cook like a normal meal i would serve to guests or what i would normally serve to crew. What kind of food would you cook? I'd really appreciate some advice.

Interviewing with the Captain or the Owners?

 Either way, if I were a Chef I would be looking to impress with my dishes for the Owner... not the crew!

I would ask them what they would like me to cook, if they tell you to just cook anything, go balls to the wall, do what you think is your best stuff.Wow them. I have to say that I do not think that cooking for the crew should be any less than for guests, although less foo foo, but quality and ingredients should be no different.

I would cook as if for crew but agreed that the ingredients should not be too varied.

Then i would show two plating options, one for guests and one for crew.

Keep the meal extremely simple and delicious, then wow them with the ability to present it for guests quickly or simply for crew with the same level of flavor.

This will show great skill and flexibility - and corner both ends of the job.

Good luck
