A chef that works at Casbah Mediterranean Kitchen and Wine Bar located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania uploaded behind the scene footage of what it’s like to work in a high end restaurant and shared it on reddit…
I’ve worked in kitchens all my life…
You may think it’s all fun and games…
But we do live by a certain set of rules.
Really it’s all about hard work.
And all 16 are spent on our feet.
We get cuts.
We get burns.
We plan out every minute of our day…
Every ingredient of our dishes…
every step of our events…
and every item of our inventory.
Failure is NOT an option.
But with all the downsides…There are upsides.
We get really cool high-tech toys like immersion circulators and CryoVac machines.
And we get really low-tech toys too.
We work with high quality ingredients from the land and sea.
A lot from Sea.
Okay mostly from Sea.
We taste EVERYTHING.
But at the end of the day, the real beauty is the food.
We strive to make food taste good,
incorporate fresh and local ingredients,
and appeal to the eye.
Even if we ARE just serving Goose Liver sometimes.
Whether it’s beef,
or pasta, we hope you like it all the same.
At the end of the day, we do everything for You.
And sometimes you make a friend or two along the way.
I’d just like to thank everybody who took the time to read through this and take a look at all the images. I think it’s important to spread the word a little bit about what people like us do on a daily basis that goes largely unseen unless you work in the industry yourself. Thank you for all the kind replies and messages, now go out and eat something good today!
