Though a kitchen’s head chef may design signature dishes and dictate the direction of a restaurant or other commercial kitchen, the cooks’ skills truly make or break the establishment. A cook with mastery of cooking techniques and kitchen literacy can ensure that each dish comes out as planned. But more than that, they can also effectively react to situations that surface in the kitchen, making independent decisions when needed. Staffing your kitchen with experienced cooks helps build the success of your restaurant or commercial kitchen.
This cooking techniques test evaluates candidates’ abilities to use frying, dry cooking, moist cooking, combination cooking methods, and kitchen literacy concerning each of these methods.
With questions addressing a wide range of on-the-job kitchen scenarios and types of food, this screening test will help you identify cooks who can effectively use cooking techniques in different situations to create the desired outcomes. Candidates who do well on this test will help ensure your kitchen runs smoothly and will help ensure that your customers’ dining expectations are met.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
