I'll try to tell you a simple example.
This article is written from the words of my friend who works as a cook cool shops in a Moscow restaurant.
Let's imagine we have come in a French restaurant and decided to order a salad of poached eggs with asparagus and fish in its own juice and garnished with roasted vegetables.
As soon as the waiter took your order, it is sent to the terminal, where it enters the electronic system as Only input is completed in the kitchen gets two checks: one to prepare the salad, the second - in fact fish juice.
Chef distributes work among their wards, and may itself take part in the process, or deal only with the assembly order on a platter. The first will begin to prepare a salad. One person will prepare the sauce, the second will poached egg and asparagus cooking. All will take about 4 minutes. 5-6 minute salad will have you on the table.
To prepare everything so quickly in the kitchen there are ready-made products: lettuce torn on the dates of the pieces, the water decoction of asparagus and eggs boils constantly.
That you did not consider themselves abandoned in the food waiting time, the waiter is always something you bring. First, he submits cutlery, then may bring water or bread.
In parallel with the preparation of salads, fish will start the cooking process. Cook takes the workpiece size and need to send it to bake on the grill or in the oven.
By the way, to submit immediately 50 servings of fish in the kitchen of the restaurant will take time a little bit more than usual. All fish in the steamer to go bake - oven with steam. The combi steamer once can bake a huge number of servings of fish, meat or cook cakes.
Fish baked about 12-15 minutes, during which time you will have time to repeatedly fry vegetables, so their preparation is left to the last minute. Vegetables, of course, has long been cut and laid out in portions, so it remains only to fry.
Back in the room, by the time you are finishing their fish salad will be ready. Good waiter knows the time of preparation of a dish so you will fish with piping hot and take empty dish of lettuce.
To the hot food did not have time to cool down until the waiter is waiting in the distribution area, it spread on hot dishes. If you put the food on a cold plate, a portion of the heat from the food will go to the warming of the cold plate. You can use this life hacking home.
Total for all the food took about 15 minutes. Throw in another 5-10 minutes on the kitchen workload and other orders can calculate the average time of hot dishes in the restaurant. I got 25-30 minutes. But keep in mind, in a good restaurant, at which time you will always take care of the "invisible care" and you do not have the impression that you are waiting.
But what about the situation at home business? At home, we often spontaneously and prepare to cook a particular dish we spend 30-40 minutes at best. After all, we have to wash the vegetables from the ground, then cut, and yet still need to prepare the sauce. If you want to prepare as quickly as in restaurants, you are kindly requested to prepare intermediates.
