Random (got to write something)

I read a comment from a fresh line cook in one of the forums I hang out in. He said he started as a dishwasher in 09 and moved up to line cook five months later. He loves the job and wants to learn, etc. A very eager young man.

It made me think, when did I start as a dishwasher? It was 1974 and I have been in professional kitchens ever since.

Just sayin.

Fresh cooks are the worst. We just hired a 17 year old who is going to a culinary trade school and if I hear, "Well, my chef at school says....fill in the blank with something completely unreasonable in a real kitchen" I'm going to litery throw is skinny ass out of the kitchen.

Just hired a 25 year old wanna be. He has potential. Had to explain to him those little Mexican guys already know 3 times as much as him and will run circles around him. If anyone needs something from the basement HE runs. Get it!
