Ugh, no doubt. I'm at the point I just can't even participate in the discussions. I just smile and nod.

I daresay that the sous chef does the bulk of the hands-on work in most kitchens. Managing takes up a lot of time.
id agree with that. especially when the exec is also the company corporate chef, and has been reprimanded for "being out of town" when he was actually at his house. the dude says hes gonna go to new york for a couple weeks, and one of the sous's ran into him at the grocery store. real classy.
