Just a quick note to say that, after 9 days of working at a famous Parisian caterer, I think that I’m progressing pretty well. That means, I’m remembering what different dishes look like and what ingredients are required, and who to go to see to get them. I kind of looked after 2 students this afternoon, which did me the world of good…getting back vaguely to my project management days at Capgemini.
Still frustrated at being told simply what to do next rather than having a list of things to “produce”. My independence and autonomy is coming though.
It’s tiring, though our working day now seems to finish around 17h or 17h30 which means that I’ve got the whole evening with the family which is great. Starting work at 6h30 is still tough but by the time I’m into my tasks it’s fine.
I think that I’ll be happy to finish at the end of the month, but I will learn several things whilst I’m here – none least than “professionalism” and “presentation”.
