    What is your favorite cooking technique?

      How to Answer

      There are many cooking techniques, and depending on the current menu at Company ABC, you may be asked to use a variety of them on any given day. Some of the most popular cooking techniques include searing, braising, deglazing, blanching, infusing, and emulsifying. There is no right or wrong answer to this question; however, the interviewer would like to see that you have a passion for your craft and the ability to apply a variety of methodologies in the kitchen.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "My favorite method of cooking at the moment, is infusing. As a former bartender, I have a deep interest in taking the aromas and flavors from unexpected sources such as flowers and herbs, to make a drink or sauce, feel more complex and decadent."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have trained in a variety of cooking techniques; however, at the moment, my favorite is emulsifying. To bring unexpected ingredients together to create a delicious flavor is more of a science than some people expect. For instance, to create a house-made mayonnaise, you need to suspend oil in water and lemon juice which works only with the use of an emulsifier such as egg yolk."
