So much respect for you pros.
I work in an office setting where I'm the designated cookout guy. Beats me up to. Typically I dont want to eat after.
But, I also worked on a fishing boat in Alaska processing pollack. Had to look at a candlelight fillet table for 16 hrs a day. Your body gets used to the motion and the angles.
I find it amazing what people in the kitchen endure and the foods they make. Glad to have them around.
I'm with Brianh!! I cook for those I love only.
I appreciate those of you who love it and do it for far less than most would ever believe.

I'm hyper active and most cod I know are I can think of no other environment that gets me through my day I love it horrible hours and feeding the masses and ask that being said I wouldn't wish this life on my worst enemy
Its a mixture of loyalty to your coworkers. A desperation about making sure you've produced something good. An arrogance that you actually know what is best. And a belief that all the ********; lost hours of family and friends, self doubting, and just the slightest flame of hope that you've made a positive impact on the world.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
As in all professions, just because you do something doesn't make you special. What makes you special is what you do with it.
I know a lot of DB cooks.
