    Biggest Cowboy Tricks

    So, what's the worst thing you've seen in a kitchen?

    Mine; I was a commis working a large function and saw a CDP, realising he was in the proverbial and a carrot down, taking one out of a veal stock pan to garnish the last plate of bourgignon.

    Another, worked with a guy so lazy he tried clingfilming every surface so he wouldn't have to clean down after service

    A chef was a crumbed and stuffed chicken breast down, so in the deep fryer then microwave for 5 mins the in the fryer again.

    He forgot a steak, so seared it in a hot pan, in the microwave then on the flat plate with a few hot grill plates on it to squash it.

    My favourite cowboy story ( I never witnessed it, but it came from a reliable source) place an entire box of eggs 180 ish eggs into the bowl of the Hobart mixer ( large planetary mixer ) pulse a few times to smash all the shells, than pass through a fine chinois to remove all the shell.

    Oh yeah. That happens. Scary. Worked for a Chef who walked out on a hotel Chef job because HR wouldn't let him fire a guy who did that. Union.

    Watched my chef pull a filet mignon and run it under cold water to keep it from going over temp...

    I fired a guy for washing the cheese of a cheese burger then sold the burger and left the hand washing sink clogged with cheese.
