I wasn’t aware that it took spelling skills
to cook. Most chefs are just scuzzy cokeheads
who are only steps away from being homeless
when the place they’re cooking for becomes week… as in LAST WEEK! It’s unfortunate that the myriad shows on TV somehow lead people to believe that chefs are somehow these gifted visionaries….they cook food…Christ. “I”ve created a spicy
Chili Aioli to put on my roasted Artichokes”….Just make me a sandwich you ass clown!
First of all, as the child of a family full of chefs and cooks, fuck you. MOST chefs work their motherfucking asses off in hopes of making a decent living for themselves and their families. Cooking requires patience, practice, LOTS of trial and error, confidence, a knowledge of chemistry, a developed sense of taste, time, energy, and a lot of the time sheer hope. No, not all cooks are artists, but just because you can’t appreciate the subtleties that they put into a meal just makes you a tasteless hack. Where I come from, when someone cooks you a good meal, that deserves respect. I think you just haven’t had a good enough meal yet. In short, go fuck yourself and try something besides bologna and Cheez-Wiz sandwich for a change.
My experience leads me to agree with Jam. After working in 3 restaurants around 15 or so chefs, most of them were regular coke users and a few were involved in dealing. Actually, most of the kitchen staff was involved, to some degree. Cocaine and sexual affairs with married waitresses, the boss’ wife, restaurant sluts, etc. Gambling problems, too. Never seen a job so consistently staffed by degenerates.
Uh – I’m with Liz. Most chefs pay a ridiculous amount of $ for schooling and work like dogs after said schooling, yet they don’t have the chance that most educated individuals have to make it back with a large salary. Jam sound bitter…looks like *someone* didn’t make it as a chef.
I agree with Kelly.
And BallsMcGrady, you need to work in a better calibre of restaurant. In my experience as a long-time chef the degenerate, drug-addled waste-cases you’ve seen are the hallmark of mediocre restaurants.
Oh, sure, you’re bound to see that kind of chef in good restaurants, too. But, then, of course, I’m sure people who work in offices know that guy in the office who likes to go out every Friday and Saturday night and get blackout-drunk and do lines off the counter of the bathroom in shitty clubs before banging the nameless slut he was grinding on the dancefloor.
