Depends on the chef. I've worked for two renowned chefs so far; one of them never talked to us unless he had to, hell, sometimes he was even nice. The other, my current employer, will freak out on me if the weather changes.

At the top levels, you're looking at people who have worked their ass off for years and years to get where they are. They have dedicated most of their life to cooking. Once they are in charge, its probably their menu, their creations etc. They want it done perfectly. Add to that its a high pressure environment and its easy to see why they lose their cool.
Also a tiny mistake can cost you a michelin star, which I imagine will have a massive impact on number of customers. A restaurant depends on its reputation.
Dane here, the head-chef of Noma (non-plebs will know) are known to throw temper tantrums in his kitchen. I can imagine this is something that comes with the pressure of having to maintain Michelin-standard at a restaurant.
>>7287030 Of course you don't 'get it' from watching youtube clips. You're not going to 'get' a classic play by reading a synopsis of it either. It's a unique experience of creative compositions of food where everything is perfectly executed. You have to be highly passionate about food to really appreciate it.
>>7289118 Naailed it. This become very clear to me in my first year of working in the kitchen. In the second year i started to understand how much my headchef worked > handled all the pressure and got the food out on time > understanding that he was one of the main pillars in this standing business... Then when i found out his salary it explained why he had a shit attitude at times. Now he has his own established resturant earning a good living and paying staff correctly.
>>7285675 Because the people they're feeding don't act like its a frivolous luxury... Have you ever tried being mr. laid back coolio while working in a fucking restaurant? Patrons are complete assholes. They force that atmosphere
