no more staff meals! majority of wait/bar staff don't appreciate, some even have the gall to complain about free food... drives me nuts. i have no problem sharing kitchen staff grub thrown together from scraps(when time allows) with dishwashers though.
In other news... we had fried potato skins with tons of cheese and stuff, and gyro/flatbread stuffed with deliciousness for staff meal tonight.
There is only one God, and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'Not Today...'
right? you would think they would realize it's in their best interest to be good to kitchen staff as the better the mood cooks/chefs are in, the better service/quality of food goes hence potential to earn more money. and b*tching about family meal is taking one giant step in the wrong direction.
All normal people love meat. If I went to a barbeque and there was no meat, I would say 'Yo Goober! Where's the meat?'.- Homer Simpson
My boss served us "mystery meat" loaf for shift meals. I wouldn't eat it. They're not being mean, just thoughtless , not thinking , kinda like kids. In my places, the servers could help themselves to homemade bread and soup. They could also order off a considerable portion of the menu for 1/2 price if we were ready. We'd also often portion samples of new specials for the staff to try.
We just work with whatever we have left over from service. If people don't show up, we have extra ingredients to play with for family meal the next day. Sometimes it's a cornucopia other times it's lean. Had some beautiful sushi grade ahi loin this week. Saved the trim and made some poke for the guys.
