I have been a chef for 30 years been a cook for 40 plus, all chefs are cooks or we would suck. I am retired from major resorts (think Orlando and mouse)and everything in this article is true and the same worldwide.
I celebrate everything we do from the unseen ‘back of the house’ and the many times I have been surprised with a giant walk in or missing B.E.O. that F&B FUBARed.
And it never fails if you 86 something everyone in the world is pissed and wants it.
These are the words of a ‘real’ chef [Chris Hill] not a ‘celebrity or T.V. chef’
