Help, need ideas for cooking small daily buffet?
OK, i recently took a new job at a convenience store / grill helping the main cook. I was trained on the grill for everything from breakfast to burgers and such , and can do everything in the deep fryers (quick stuff - ie: burritos , chicken , pizza sticks , etc.) . Now the cook is getting fired and the owners want me to take over everything. We do a daily buffet - but i'm playing this one by ear cause i was NOT trained and never cooked large amounts before. Anyone know a good online resource to help me? Even some suggestions on items would help. thnx in advance... Also , i'm looking for simple lunch ideas only for the buffet, ....oh , and i'm a newbie at cooking for large groups and been on the job a week and a half (!!) with very limited experience..

Just go with what you've seen. The manager/owners should really give you an outline of what you should be doing...otherwise it's their own d**n fault for firing that last guy. Honestly, if they fire you, they'll really be up a creek won't they?

I would look through your order books from suppliers and use quick and easy heat up foods, such as spring rolls, dim sims, chicken tenders anything that you can heat up to serve.

No training? Then I guess that means no food safety training? That should be your biggest concern, not making anyone sick... More
