Today we had to do some catering prep. My job was to help flatten and dip chocolate cookies in sprinkles. It took us about four hours to do them all. I was struck by how similar this assembly-line set up was to what I do at work every day. The good thing about caterings is that we get a taste of what cooking is like in the real world. A problem that we ran into is that we ran out of sprinkles, and someone had to run to the store to pick up more. That’s why it is important to be prepared and order the correct amount of ingredients.
