A Cook At An Upscale Restaurant Just Uploaded These Photos. At First, I Was Horrified…Then Hungry.
· Written by Taylor Goldblatt
A chef that works at Casbah Mediterranean kitchen and wine bar located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, wanted to give people a candid look into what really goes on in a restaurant’s kitchen. These chefs work much harder, and for longer hours, to make the delicious food we eat than I ever imagined. So the next time you sit down to eat a big, juicy, steak, know that it was someone’s passion that made it.
But he wanted to show people just how many hours people put into making delicious food for customers. (And 16 hours could be considered a short day.)
But if you think this seems like a lot of work without reward, these chefs also get to play with new fangled kitchen toys like immersion circulators and CryoVac machines.
Not only that, but they get to taste every dish they create. Their goal is to make sure the experience is perfect, not over-seasoned or under. And if it is, they know it’s their fault.
I have a new appreciation for all of the work chefs do… and how hungry I am now.
It’s time for a snack, I think, and to share this awesome article with your friends.
