MorePeasPlease: See, I come from New Orleans. I was raised to be a saucier. Great saucier. Then I was supposed to go to Paris, study at the Escoffier school.
Then I got orders for my physical. Hell, I joined the Navy. Heard they had better food.

Cook school, that did it ... you don't want to hear about that.

How do you feel about mangoes?

machodonkeywrestler: Wolf_Blitzer: Tatsuma: nothing like showing up on the food network, and I would rather not discuss this as that would make me pretty easy to identify for any internet detective out there, and considering the amount of hate mail/death threats I've had over the years, I am a bit sensitive about personal info making it out there on the web

If you don't want to talk about it, then don't talk about it. Having a "small claim to fame" that you refuse to talk about is the equivalent of having a hot canadian girlfriend.

Really? 2002 and you don't know why he wouldn't want to let people know who he is?

I know who he is

I rather enjoyed being a scrawny, stoned line cook taking out my aggression on the scrambled eggs while I 'slopped the hogs' (ie, you people). There is also some satisfaction at half-blowing up orders of mozzarella sticks so i could eat them, dipping them in the brown gravy on the steam table, and then yelling at effeminate waiters to 'get this shiat out of my window right now' before fawning over the lowliest dysfuctional waitress with big hooters.

"Hey, stall all the orders. I gotta take the trash out to the dumpster and smoke a bowl, okay?"

was that wrong? should I have not done that?

BunkyBrewman: Pretty good? heh The only school we don't look down on is CIA....and even then, we think those guys are a bit too pretentious after they graduate.

Really? Well maybe it has changed in recent years, because while better (but certainly a lot pricier) than where I went, it wasn't described to me as THAT great. Certainly no straight ticket to a job as executive chef immediately out of the gate.

And yeah, to be in that business you need to have some marbles loose, but it's just part of the fun.

Man, I am moving into a new place very soon where I'll actually have a decent kitchen and, more importantly, access to great local ingredients, I am extremely excited about that. The last year and a half has been brutal (basically no access to a real kitchen)

(meaning, what I did in that place in North America in terms of signature dish was popular enough that almost two years later, some people from North America either traveling or living in Israel and casually hearing my name heard about it, which would make it really easy for an internet detective to put two and two together. as I said, on the other hand, in the grand scheme of things, it is a minor claim to fame)

No, we all get it, she's Canadian. It's cool bro.

That was a lot of words to say "Preparing food for people is a poor career choice."

DaCaptain19: Show me a "chef" who can make a better burger or steak than I do on my own charcoal grill. And quit making burgers with "kobe beef" sh*t...$15 for a farking burger that isn't as good as mine, my ass.

You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. I mean, seriously you whine about a $15 kobe beef burger?

Again, fairly sure that Olive Garden is about as great a restaurant you've ever eaten at.

Is that one of those blog posts from someone in "the industry" like a waiter or chef? Listen, I don't give a fark about your feelings or what shenanigans or travails go on behind that kitchen door. I just want some good food and I'll pay you for it.

Make me my grub you slaves; maybe I'll give you the tip if I'm feeling particularly generous.
