The Cook's Dilemma
I’m sure we’ve all heard the advice not to go food shopping when you are hungry. When you do shop hungry you end up buying all sorts of stuff that you want to eat right now. Conversely, when shopping after eating you end up buying more items such as cleaning products and things like tooth paste and personal products.
I’m sure you’ve noticed the difference in your cooking abilities when you are hungry or not, which is cooking way too much or just putting out chips and salsa.
My question here is, how do chiefs and cooks do their jobs? Can one do an entire shift and be hungry the entire time, or have they developed the skill to plod on like a machine even after having a meal? If they sample their food for quality all day as they cook, they can be full after an hour on a shift. How do they keep up with the balance of the workload?
Is there any one in the industry out there who would care to comment? How do you do it?
