    Either carrots or tomatoes. Or, goddamnit, both on the same day. Sometimes I can save them for the prep cooks, other times they've just got to be done... and I'm the Sous Shmuck doing them.

    Over, and over, and over.

    I have always hated peeling shallots. And have always struggled with shelling boiled quails eggs. Nowadays I only cook at home though, so I enjoy everything.
