Why are they like this?
civilians will never understand
You are a civilian
chefs don't call people "civilians"
Handle two three-tops at the SAME TIME civvie. Then talk to me. Do you know how hard it is to get out two garlic bread apps at the same time? No, I didnt think so.
I actually laughed out loud
lil bro thinks he's in a cyberpunk game lmfao
Cringe ass newfag post
Modern food culture is gay
>see, in order to make this exquisite dish you are gonna need to stir this specific ingredient for 37 and 19 seconds and 273 milliseconds blah blah
You get the point
All of it is completely gay. All this tryhard gay shit ''art'' cooking, people calling themselves masters and scientists with a massive ego going on about how they're the best ever and what do they do on every fucking dish? Just drop a raw egg on it, fuck you. Sprinkle spring onion on top.
Fucking hacks. Who the fuck wants to eat raw eggs. Imagine spending 1000 dollars for some expensive wagyu beef with white truffle and whatever expensive shit you can put on it, and then some fag just plops a raw 2 cent egg on top of it.
If you need to measure the ingredients or count the time, you are not cooking. You are just following a recipe like a soulless NPC
Real cooking, like in any other real art, is about the heart
No. You need to cook things for the right amount of time or you/your customer will die of food poisoning because you said "lol whatever that's probably cooked who cares i do it from the heart coz i'm a free-spirit-hippy"
haha yeah, except the part where that's not a thing
You think heston blumenthal represents modern cooking? Lmao
That’s just normal cooking, nothing modern about it. You’re just a rusanglogermcuck that has no good cuisine like actual Europeans or even Asians and Africans. Must suck to be a gipsy.
meds + go back
I agree, may the Mediterraneans live forever and all those who aren’t go back to their Asian shitholes.
I really doubt you can cook, you probably live on mcdonald's or whatever your caretaker gives you, you schizophrenic freak.
lol stay mad hansdeep nigelwong
You didn't cook that you delusional freak, it's an image someone else made. Take your fucking meds.
You gonna cry about it some more, Genghis?
What do we got here? Some shallots, tomatoes, goat cheese, and a shitty cut of sirloin? Nice presentation. Simple, but filling. I would eat that. Unless it's all salty and drowned in garlic butter.
thats a shank of some kind you dingus
That's obviously lamb you retard
LMAO, mudcakes are fine dining now?
Still better than rusanglogermcuck food
ya mud is better than cheeseburgers or schnitzel. good call
I cook by watching a timer and people make fun of me for it...but I'm easily distracted and will burn the fucking house down. I don't follow it to the second but I need reminding.
There's a limit to how good food can be, so high-end restaurants need to slap on an extra layer of razzle-dazzle to grift the rich.
And oftentimes their head gets stuck so far up their own ass that the cooking gets sloppy, but they coast on the reputation they built + serving expensive ingredients & good wine.
Id be pretty stoked to be the cow looking down on them honoring my body parts with such celebration
I mean yeah, the whole thing is really stupid but I'd be pretty stoked, too.
Cows are based. Learn how to properly cook your beef. It'll taste great and honor the sacrifice they made for you.
Personally, I'd still be a little milked off about being decapitated, butchered, and eaten
Imagine the emptiness of your life when this is what you decide to spend your money on. It just screams about the loneliness these individuals must feel when they partake in these *experiences*
idk sounds like cope anon blowing alot of money on stupid shit is fun
you have it backwards
have you ever made it rain? i bet its pretty sweet
i bet you’re not white or handsome
wrong on both counts now that I learned to hide my lackluster chin with a well trimmed beard.
no pics no proof
>blowing alot of money on stupid shit is fun
This just proves my point tbh
How does it prove your point? What stops someone from enjoying spending money on a flashy golden steak and enjoying what ever pleasures of life that you hold dear?
I think you will find it healthy to sit down and think about it anon. Good luck
are you not able to tell me what makes your life so full and theirs so empty? It seems to me that you are very much hoping that these people feel lonely on the inside because you need that to be so.
>literally pulling all this hedonistic bullshit out of his ass
might be fun in the moment but it ain't fun the next day when you remember everything else you could have bought
>might be fun in the moment but it ain't fun the next day when you remember everything else you could have bought
fucking retard if they can blow 1k on a steak which honestly is not even that much if you make good money then they can buy anything else
you're allowed to be judged for liking stupid fucking restaurant shows
you're allowed to like them and people are allowed to mock you for it
you have shit taste and probably a shit personality
I went Ramsays restaurant in London and the food was really mediocre
that all looks really fucking gay
it looks fun. but not the type of fun that is actually fun.
damn this is fucking awesome, what a spectacle
*looks at it through tiny phone screen*
Meanwhile, in reality:
>the fuck is a tablespoon anyway
>just gonna eyeball it
>smoked paprika? fuck you, chili powder is red
>i'm gonna slather this shit in sour cream, it's gonna be awesome
>chilli powder is red
Kek. When I was a kid, I ate some mac and cheese from an eatery we went to all the time. It was always topped with paprika. One time, it was so spicy it made me cry. Someone fucked up and covered it with cayenne by mistake. Got free meals for a year at least.
That's just... Normal cooking?
You have to put the ingredients in certain measurements in a certain order for certain amounts of time... That's not some crazy high brow thing that's literally any recipe
Real talk do you cook at home
>t. fat retard who still lives with his mom
cooking used to be for the lowest of the low in society, they like to pretend they're working class when they're just incel chuds with a cooking pan
I hate cooks and chefs but they're definitely not incels, they're a bunch of criminals and cokeheads though
It's strange how many of them are though
there's always at least one guy on cooking shows
>cooking saved my life
>I went to jail for a few years (no reason given of course)
>where I found my passion for cooking and Jesus
>now I'm the owner of jailhouse kitchen in Brooklyn New York
>gets eliminated and looks like they'd probably be waiting outside with a knife
Diswashers are the incels, once you get your dick wet they let you on the line.
this is such a fucking "line cook" thing to say
I bet you weren't even joking
>dissing the dishie
You've worked in a kitchen I see
Cooks are retarded but they're definitely not incels, some of the most radical people I know are cooks. Definitely not incels
No retard, that was farming. Hence why we use English for farm animals and French for their meat
All of you are wrong. Throughout history the most reviled professionals have always been actors. In pre-clown world modern times, journalists and politicians would largely be considered disgusting as well. The current state of things where these professions aren't regarded as lesser than prostitutes and are in-fact lauded shows you just how far we've fallen.
>"I'm a black woman living in America, chefs aint got nothing on me"
I've had a few head chefs who were like that and then a few who were relatively normal people
Working in a kitchen actually is a stressful job, it's hot and noisy and people are always yelling and stressed about getting orders done on time. And if anything goes wrong, the customer gets asshurt and it backs everything up even further. Not to mention all the hot water/oil and knives, it's a bit dangerous as well. Not a fun job and doesn't even pay well, I say this as someone who likes to cook but would never do it professionally after my short experience. I would rather do almost anything else.
>I would rather do almost anything else
What about killing yourself, would you do that? (you should)
Lol how's working as a dish bitch treating you
he’s probably richer than you
good one anon, you totally got that guy. he'll think twice about messing with a chef now!
i think you should keep on living
>anon sets off some seething kitchen wagie
>We're cunts to everyone on and off the job because everyone is yelling and work is stressful
Oh shut the fuck up
t. NEET, I'm happy to subsidize your lifestyle of posting and gooning while you make yourself mentally ill on here
This. I have friends who are chefs at popular restaurants. They work from early hours in the morning until midnight every day. Shit pay. No breaks. Everyone is on coke. Working in high heat in closed spaces. Everyone is an asshole to each other. Sounds like hell tbh. No wonder they all kept quitting and only went back to make quick money.
It mystifies me how these kinds of horrendous jobs can be sustained. It's not even necessary labor like cleaning toilets or laying bricks or whatever. Having food served to you is a luxury which can be cut at any time.
Yep working in kitchens for more than a few years is retarded. There's no reason not to do construction instead
been a chef for whole my life
never yelled at a waiter in my life because I'm not a insecure POS
You just do your job, nothing more nothing less
because it's harder on your body
t.0 tats never been drunk or high
it looks like the worst job in the world. some crazy people love to wear that as a badge of honor though.
>it's a bit dangerous as well
If you're the guy delivering the food, sure.
Not relevant to the board,retard
>Chef what I've prepared for you is a deconstructed savoury mochi ball with a sriracha recuction and microgreens
Molecular gastronomy hasn't been "cool" for like 7-8 years now. Talk to people outside of imageboards every once in a while.
it never was cool and you’re exposing yourself
>”cool, I’m gonna go eat some mcnuggets now”
Its just a job. If you're good at it you can get a decent wage because people want to hang on to you, seeing as 90% of the work force have no skill and are retarded. I make 25 an hour at a bar and grill. I don't think I'm "talented", just learned how to cook things fast and work well with people. Really just like any other job.
Yeah right, give us some free cooking tips if you're so skilled.
99% of amateur cooks and self professed "grill masters" cook the everloving shit out of their food and no one has the heart (or palate) to tell them their shit is over cooked.
Turn the fucking heat down and don't let impatience lead to over cooking. It's better to go a little on the slow side and get a perfectly cooked meal than to crank the heat and over cook. You can always through something back on heat to cook it a little more, but you can't UNCOOK food that's already turned into a dried, flavorless husk.
I grill with charcoal, so I'm not entirely sure what the temperature of the grill itself is but I use a meat thermometer to insure nothing gets overcooked at least. Easier to get to and maintain a specific temp with my smoker though.
i used to work a top 5 fancy restaurant, the meats were done over charcoals, but for whatever reason, the head chef had forbidden the use of a temp probe, so shit was constantly getting sent back for being underdone. never overdone at least.
you can make 25 an hour at mcdonalds or ross
>25 an hour is supposed to be good
Where do you guys work and what do you make?
nintendo with my dad
um im currently between jobs
sega with my uncle
>nothing, do it for the love of the game
atari with my nephew
sony with my gf(female)
I'm a business analyst (i.e. look at spreadsheets for about an hour a day and play vidya / watch YouTube rest of the day working from home). I'm currently 110k a year, it feels like I'm robbing the company from how little work I do lmao.
what does a business analyst actually do? like what service are you providing?
NTA but I hope you don't imply that a job position does need to be in any way shape or form productive for a company to generate profit from said job position
They provide made up posts on Cinemaphile
It really depends on what industry they're working in, from a high level
>create processes for the tasks a company is trying to complete (like flow charts and shit)
>analyze spreadsheets for specific data from large extracts (filtering like a mother fucker)
>engage business stakeholders who are required for some tasks, organize them for this work
The project I'm on right now is continually stalled by technical blockers so most of the time I have fuck all to do but still get paid, shit's great.
I didn't say good, I said decent, as in, I can pay my rent, go on vacation once a year, that sort of thing. I make about 50k a year which puts me well above the poverty line and just a little under the average salary for a single person in my area. Like I said, its just a job, not really a career or anything, so the whole culture of being a bad ass chef is admittedly retarded.
Literally couldnt give you tips if you dont cook at a restaurant, the skill comes in timing, prioritizing tasks, that sort of thing. Like I said its not talent, its getting used to working in that environment and being fast
what does your arm tattoo say
I dont have any tats, but literally every other cook at my restaurant has sleeves. Two of them have tridents.
this is a sincere question: if you continue working at this job, do you see yourself getting an arm tattoo, and what kind of timeline are we talking about
Doubt it. Not my style. My brother wants to get some family related thing tattoo'd together, but I will have it done on my chest or back where its not visible to the public, and I'm really just doing it because he is so stoked on the idea I think it would make him happy.
>Sneed's Feed and Seed
That is a good wage though. You could save literally half of what you earn.
25$ an hour ain't that great especially when you probably have really shit benefits too. Do you even get paid sick leave or vacation?
Why do you care so much? Its not like you ever interact with these people in real life.
i respect cooks more than stem bugmen and plumbers
Ma nama chef
I have a friend who's exactly like this, even with the foggy arm tattoos. He went to chef school or whatever the fuck it's called, became even more of a douchebag and used to post Bourdain quotes on faceberg all the time. He does nothing but make burgers thinking they're gourmet burgers or some shit when they taste like every other food truck burger in the world. The fag is a Patriots fan and to this day can't even light a charcoal grill properly, go figure.
>He does nothing but make burgers thinking they're gourmet burgers or some shit when they taste like every other food truck burger in the world.
So they taste pretty good and you're just a whiny fag? I would let my homosexual friend boast about how good his burgers were if he gave me tasty burgers for free.
I never said they're bad, I just said he thinks he's Gordon Ramsay or something over some burger anyone can make.
Lmao I wish.
So he invites you over and then charges you for burgers he makes? Okay, now I get why you hate the fag.
He doesn't own a food truck or his own business, he literally makes burgers at some hipster type place. Dude chimps out when I call him SpongeBob.
But yeah even back when we hanged out more he was like "I can make burgers for you all but I'll have to charge some sort of cover fee to my event".
>He doesn't own a food truck or his own business, he literally makes burgers at some hipster type place. Dude chimps out when I call him SpongeBob.
>But yeah even back when we hanged out more he was like "I can make burgers for you all but I'll have to charge some sort of cover fee to my event".
What a fag
Unskilled labourers such as chefs have a chip on their shoulder from never having done hard work/man's work.
and youre a mans man?
I used to sell blow to just about every gastro employee im my old city.
Most of the personality attributes you dislike are directly the cause of them being literally high on coke most of the time. I mean doing lines all shift until midnight, doing more until like 6AM, sleeping like 2-4 hours before railing another line before noon shift.
I would do a morning, evening and late night run for a single person in the same day sometimes. However usually late night run usually went to my on-call Albanian. Those guys are literally always available somehow
If I had to work a 7am-3am shift for NYE or other big events like my pastry chef buddy I'd be zoinked out of my mind most of the time too
yeah I dont blame them and their bosses didn't even care (those not consuming themselves) even when they knew exactly who I was when I would sometimes literally roll into the kitchen to deliver because they knew it kept the guys productive and motivated.
I just never understood how you sustain that for a whole career without massive health implications
>I just never understood how you sustain that for a whole career without massive health implications
So you work a lot for not much money
You even need drugs to get through the day which costs money
Whats the point of working so long then?
Why not just get a different job where you work 8 hours for the same or better money without the money sink of buying drugs?
You have more free time too to not get insane.
It's fucking retarded tho.
>barely make enough money to live
>spend ur money on fkin cocaine a very expensive drug
>don't even get to enjoy the high
Also working on coke is not enjoyable. You get so amped up you are just waiting for heart problems to arise
Because modern day normies think putting a slab of meat near/on a source of heat and waiting is the hardest thing you could possibly do. Seriously. Normies with even the slightest bit of basic cooking skills love to brag about how they can cook.
They like to think they are artists instead of service workers even if they had no training in the culinary arts. They can't understand that nobody gives a shit if they did something new with cheese and their sous vide machine they bought at Walmart.
Motherfucker you flip burgers
i swear there was no daughter-fu subplot in the original manga. was that added in for the live action?
A lot of cooks are ex convicts, hence the tattoos and in some cases the personality disorders/drug addictions/alcoholism. Many are into punk rock and like the restaurant life since their shows start late or take place at restaurants/places with kitchens. It's like any profession: Yeah there is a somewhat stereotypical 'look' and personality surrounding the job but that doesn't mean they are dicks. I've met some really awesome chefs who were great people who looked like OP's pic related and then I've met some who were really douche and not cool who looked like OP's pic. You could make the same pic stereotype with any profession:
*some fat guy with his shirt half tucked in, food stains on his shirt, glasses, tons of acne*
>Yeah I'm a fucking computer programmer
>Yeah I've got 3 computer monitors and 5 3-D printers in my room, fucking deal with it
>No one's job is harder than mine
>I'm a giant pussy and condescending homosexual for no reason
>Computer programming is fucking intense
>*some fat guy with his shirt half tucked in, food stains on his shirt, glasses, tons of acne*
>>Yeah I'm a fucking computer programmer
>>Yeah I've got 3 computer monitors and 5 3-D printers in my room, fucking deal with it
>>No one's job is harder than mine
>>I'm a giant pussy and condescending homosexual for no reason
programming is fucking intense
Kino. Someone make this now.
you have to be delusional when you work at two different kitchens in a week because you only get paid $16 an hour and you have to pay for the copious amounts of drugs you have to do to keep living horrible life
line cooks are cool, fun to hang out with.
"chefs" are homosexuals.
that's such a retarded looking frog, post the normal one
i gotchu senpai
I blame Marco Pierre White for kickstarting this particular personality worship
>I’m gonna set the timer for four minutes
>I want to get it nice and hot on the outside, and unpleasantly cool on the inside
>Take out the dish
>Remove film, and enjoy
>Taste this, it's fucking cold isn't it!? How long did you airfry it for?
>10 minutes, chef
>10 MINUTES? IT SAYS TO AIRFRY FOR 14 MINUTES RIGHT HERE ON THE PACKAGING YOU DONKEY!
>SEND IT BACK
>Taste this, it's fucking cold isn't it!? How long did you airfry it for?
>10 minutes, chef
>10 MINUTES? IT SAYS TO AIRFRY FOR 14 MINUTES RIGHT HERE ON THE PACKAGING YOU DONKEY!
>SEND IT BACK
I don't understand you people. Only the elites and snobs would hate normal people finally having access to affordable michelin star frozen dinners.
With the exception of
>I'm a gigantic piece of shit for no reason
This is Anthony Bourdain's fault. And that one is Gordon Ramsay's fault.
cocaine is a gay drug
Im a cook at a fine french restaurant in maine ama.
We're closed tonight because there was a mass shooting that left 22 people dead last night
why did the chef do it?
Fish delivery was late, many such cases
I just saw a video about that, if I live in America I would for sure conceal carry. Wouldn't want to die because some retard heard voices and found it much easier to buy an AR-15 than going to the doc.
Maybe guns shouldn’t be so easily purchased. Especially not ARs.
Maybe you should go fuck yourself
Maybe society shouldn't be so sick that men feel like becoming mass shooters, what about that, dumbass?
>Just trust the government to be the only ones armed
They get full-auto rifles, tanks, and jets. Fuck off with this "maybe people shouldn't have ar-15s" garbage
well people like you shouldnt maybe we start there
Shall. *clap* Not. *clap* Be. *clap* Infringed.
the fucker is still at large
Stressful, very competitive, no life outside it. You need balls
there’s nothing brave or courageous about it
They're like this because they're personality is already dogshit and being a cook is the only profession they can work in since they probably don't have a college education and they're annoying to be around. cooking shows being popular has made it worse and now everyone thinks they're gordon ramsay because they know how to make tomato bisque from scratch.
i work in a kitchen and have dealt with these types. they don't last long.
there’s a billion other college degree less professions and they aren’t as cringe so no it’s not that
also college is a waste of time and money
This is only an european/american thing. Mexican food is usually made by chubby uncles and aunts who are happy to teach you.
I have a friend who's a chef and is really like this. He's a good dude at heart but has some massive ego problems and some weird inferiority/superiority complex about literally every fucking thing that make him insufferable in all but small doses and has a massive chip on his shoulder over every little thing that's ever happened to him. What the fuck is it, does this profession attract these kinds of people or does it create/make them worse?
The kitchen is the last resort for all kinds of people. Its also the first resort for some people. People are influenced by their surroundings and the people they work with. Good people come in, mix with people who have really fucked up their lives.
>The kitchen is the last resort for all kinds of people.
during my manwhore days i stumbled upon a cabal of bipolar women in the hollywood hills. during a manic episode one of them had started a youtube channel and turned that into selling womens athletic gear. she was making enough to rent a huge old house with 7 or 8 rooms. all the women in the house were mentally ill, most of them hiding it from outsiders. about half of them worked in kitchens. one of the bipolar women explained she learned being a cook was her best option because during mania she will destroy her social life and have to move which will fuck up careers but no matter where you are you can get hired as a cook with no references. so these women just live a normal life in a city for a couple years, go batshit insane and destroy themselves for a few months. then move to another city where noone will recognize them and do it all over again.
>no matter where you are you can get hired as a cook with no references.
p much. also very easy to find drug connections
People have to convince themselves they're some sort of edgy rebel to blind themselves from the fact that we're all drones marching to the same monotonous tune of life.
Cooking was punk but now its fake and gay.
I get banned for making threads like this, even when I tie it into a proper movie and television angle. This one's been up for half a day. Why are they like this?
>This one's been up for half a day. Why are they like this?
need to get on rapeape's good side and his jannies will take mercy on you. go research his politics and parrot them on Cinemaphile
too busy posting rapunzel morphs in the AI thread
Cooking is retarded, I 100% order in food or get takeout
come back when you have done a few tours in a popular restaurant, you won't be the same
I dunno about chefs, but cooking itself is ok as long as it's something simple.
Once you add more than 4-5 ingredients and a dozen steps thats when these nimrods appear..
>people who work as cooks are soooo low iq they cant handle work that has more than 4 steps to it
holy shit just imagining retards like these being responsible for IT of a company to work day to day or hell even just as electrician my god lmao they would die a week in the job.
I make your food. It tastes great. No feedback. Hold up i was a chef...
Anthony Bourdain was a fake tough guy homosexual who never worked hard in his life.
This is literally my brother. He's almost 40. I was hoping he would have been done with this phase 15 years ago. He still lives in a studio apartment and lives paycheck to paycheck. It makes me sad.
he has a drug problem dumbfuck
Chef's don't get vacation time, get called in on their days off, work in a hot, stressful environment all day, and have to manage a kitchen full of convicts and dumbass teenagers who are only there for weed money.
t. worked in kitchens for 10 years
so fucking what
We know. It's not admirable.
Most chefs aren't like this and actively resent the popularisation of this image
I have never met a chef who didn't think Gordon Ramsey was a tool
i've been a chef for over twenty years now, tattoo chefs are a major red flag for me. of course some people are going to cover themselves in random tattoos no matter what their profession, those guys are chill. it's the chefs that have a tattoo of their knife on their forearm, or an animal cut chart, they tend to be the most pretentious, self inflated, shittest, social media chefs in the industry.
>full head of hair
>has a useful skill
>has a job
He looks like a good lad
Pic related. That was what started the whole "rockstar chef" persona
Because the food I industry is for:
1. Highschool and college dropouts without any other prospects
2. Young people still in highschool or college
2. Criminals who can't get hired at other jobs because they have a record
3. Idiots who get memes into culinary school because they love food, who then have their dreams crushed.
If you've never worked in food it's kind of hard to describe just how shit of an industry it is. I was never more miserable than when I was working food jobs and I have never had another job in any other industry that was as shit as the best food job I had.
because they have nothing else to take pride in and the social atmosphere of a restaurant is fucking terrible
it doesn't have to be, but it is true 99% of the time
do chefs get a cut of the tip? I know some restaurants share a tiny part of the tip with the cooks but not with the che, right?
it varies restaurant by restaurant.
the absolute worst end of the spectrum is the waitresses taking everything for themselves.
the middle section (and most common) is the waitress gets her tips, then she individually tips out her busboys / dishwashers / cooks at her discretion (some waitresses are extremely fucking selfish, some are fair, and some are generous)
and then at the other end of the spectrum is where all tips are pooled (which incentivizes stealing and more scumbaggery, by incentivizing just generally good and pleasant work but that's another topic because remember we're dealing with RESATURANT WORKERS who are by default scumbags)
if everyone plays along, option C is the best because everyone makes way more money on average and everything is generally more pleasant. but getting restaurant people to 'play nice' is absolutely fucking impossible
I worked at this one place where BOH management doled out the pooled tips. they'd pay themselves out $100-200 a week and I'd get $3-5 as a linecook lmao
>heh bet you wouldn't last one day where I work
>a challenger appears
>want to be a good cook
>understand that becoming a chef to learn will just turn me into a coke addicted wreck
>the only thing I'm good at are soups, stews and roasts that take hours and are only elevated with booze, butter or stock cubes
>watch stuff like ethan chlebowski for digestable food science vids and jean "HELLO FRIENDS" pierre for grounded how to actually cook shit vids
>it's all for shit because the 9-5 wagie job + commute means I have no time
>try advanced prep + stir frying which seems logical
>spend hours chopping shit because I'm clumsy as fuck despite tojiro knife
>glass hob so carbon steel undergoes shape change and is useless
>still have to season carbon steel constantly
I just want tasty, nutritious meals that are inexpensive and don't take an age to cook. I don't want to eat slop for the rest of my days.
nigga just make a sandwich
I've watched too many food videos and now believe a sandwich involves cooking the meat yourself and smuggling only the finest italian condiments via a man's asshole.
Watch out or I'll tell you my hot dog recipe
I'm going to post it anyway
Best hot dog
hours chopping shit because I'm clumsy as fuck despite tojiro knife
the most time wasted in the kitchen is spent washing, peeling, cutting vegetables. this is why our first few weeks at culinary school are spent on knife skills, in the workplace these jobs get delegated to the lowest ranking team member, high volume restaurants employ dedicated prep chefs, and catering companies buy machines to do that work for them. if you lack the time or aptitude to increase your knife skills, i recommend buying a posh food processor. these machines come with specialised attachments to perform a variety of cuts for you and will optimise your time in the kitchen. there is no shame in taking advantage of the machine.
every "hardcore" aspect of working in a restaurant is actually a consequence of frequent hard drug use. pan sauces don't make you delusional, high strung, aggressive, and unable to sleep, but cocaine does.
One of these fuckers where I work. He's fatter and completely bald and he goes on an on about his bad childhood and how he will NEVER end up like the rest of his family then he acts exactly like this image.
>customers don't tip!
raise prices 20%
>customers are too picky!
write "no substitutions" on the menu
>customers will order a full meal just before closing time!
move the posted closing time up 30 minutes, now the stragglers will actually leave when you want to leave
i solved so many problems for you guys just now. maybe we won't have to hear about how food service is the hardest job in the world anymore.
>write "no substitutions" on the menu
You're going to cook what I want, wagie.
>Coke bars are depressing places
It just reminds you that it's a work drug not a party drug. A real good and memorable time is made by enjoying the moments you have. No 70 year old is looking back going "man I wish I did more coke in the 80s"
whats a coke bar? kinda like a milk bar? the one in majoras mask has good music
>I get it, you have a short man's complex, you can barely reach over this fucking table. Is this why you have the tattoos and your cool little scars? And you go out and take your smoke breaks? It's fun isn't it? But here's the thing, you're terrible at this. You're no good at it. Go faster, motherfucker. Keep going faster. Why are you so slow? Why are you so fucking slow? You think you're so tough. Yeah? Why don't you say this.
Say, yes, chef. I'm so tough. Say fucking, yes, chef. I'm so tough. Yes, chef. I'm so tough. You are not tough. You are bullshit.
Holy fucking based. The bear BTFO
The funny thing is there's not a single person in this thread criticizing cooks who could ever last a week working on a busy restaurant line.
I'll never be the fastest guy at taking apart pallets either, every shitty job I had I was motivated to not get too comfy
my current job is supposedly one of the most dangerous in the world and has a very high rate of injury and death. noone I work with acts like this, even the cuntiest guys are still courteous to strangers and polite to customers. I think the danger makes you a lot more secure in your masculinity so noone feels the need to act tough.
No idea why this job is so idolized and drama queened. I managed to scrape up enough to start a foodtruck 8 years ago and all the zoning, fees, and red tape have been nothing but a pain in the ass the whole time. I think it always boils down to what my nanny said. You will never starve in a kitchen. Never have. Never will.
Drugs, alcoholism, and low self worth. I only started working in kitchens when I was 14 for extra cash and food. You will never starve working in a kitchen.
because they're fucking gay retarded drug addicts
