FOH manager for a rather stupid cafe, that makes a lot of money and I make pretty decent money and have no college education. I hire, fire, kiss ass (our chef, the owner and customers) and figure out ways to be as bullshit and organic as possible and still satisfy customers when they get bored of what is in season.

I'm a good cook, but rarely am I asked into the kitchen, because I have other things to work on and the chef is a moody bitch. Favorite days are when I have to be the "barista", because the kid we just hired was a no call and run tables.

I have a few go to dishes, now that the weather's cooler I'm doing a lot of soups/stews/slow simmered dishes.

I make a good broccoli cheese soup, pretty good lentil soup/stew. Filipino adobo with pork and chicken.. I usually make big batches and eat through the week or freeze some.

I also like doing german dishes like braised cabbage, spaetzle, bratwurst cooked in onions and beer and finished on the grill.

Made some sauerbraten a few months back and it was delish, long marinating time though.

Summertime I grill and smoke a bunch, make cooler dishes when it gets really hot like greek orzo salad, or sometimes gazpacho

Sous chef at fine dining restaurant. Hours and pay are shitty but can't imagine doing anything else honestly, love cooking, love the camaraderie of a good kitchen, love that 'well oiled machine' feeling when you're busy as fuck and just banging out food. Finally at the stage of my career where I get to really start being creative and coming up with more dishes and stuff which I'm thrilled about. Any other happy cooks on here, or is everyone miserable about it?

''I'm a stay at home dad who cooks for his kids!''

I hope you realise your children fucking hate your shit cooking you absolute cunt. They despise you and the way you ruin every single meal by insisting that you cook a 'special and fun' recipe for them. 'daddys special'. Special fucking bullshit, mate. They HATE YOU AND YOUR SHIT COOKING. WHENEVER THEY COME HOME FROM SCHOOL AND SMELL THE DISGUSTING COMBINATION OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE AND OVERUSED SPICES THEY GET A SICKENING TWIST IN THEIR STOMACH

They try to turn and run but before they know it, out you come with your fucking unshaven, unworked face and a fucking apron

''DADDY HAS A SPECIAL DINNER TONIGHT GUYS! HOW ABOUT SOME GERMAN SAUSAGE MARINADED IN DADDY'S SPECIAL HERB AND CHICKEN SACHET SAUCE I BOUGHT FROM THE SUPERMARKET! NOW I'M GOING TO STARE AT YOU AS YOU EAT BECAUSE MY ENTIRE SELF WORTH IS BASED ON YOUR FUCKING REACTION TO THIS SHITTY BLAND FOOD BECAUSE I AM A STAY AT HOME DAD!''

Just fuck off. Just cook your kids food they want. They won't want your fucking 'daddy's famous mash potato with garlic chili mexican pepper surprise' because they haven't ruined their lives yet like you and don't need to know how failure tastes. They will learn themselves after being raised by you you pathetic fuck.

I used to work in restaurants. I got tired of everyone demanding that I work overtime, and never paying me for it (fuck the time and a half, just the hours worked would have been nice). At my last job, after about a month of 90+h workweeks being paid at 43.5h per at my hourly rate, the restaurant manager gave me a $100 bonus "for my hard work." I took the money, quit on the spot, and got $20 worth of shots from the bartender.

I'm a web developer.

>>
I've worked as a line cool in the past. It's nice if you work in a fun place and can put out good food while you enjoy doing it. But the pay was low and the hours sucked.

Now I work for a small gourmet food distributor. We supply several Michelin starred restaurants, which is pretty cool. I'm a manager of a team of about 10 people. We also sell retail to customers. It's a decent job. I get paid better than when I was a cook and I have normal hours and get to sit at a desk. It's actually more stressful though because I'm accountable for an entire line of business and if things go wrong there's no one to blame but me.

I still kinda miss the rush of the line on a busy weekend night cranking out food like there's no tomorrow. That's when I really learned how to cook and properly time multiple components of a dish to all be ready at the same time.

Not anything close to a sous chef in a brigade , but acting sous chef in a kitchen of three (1 head , 1 commi) . Because my employers are cheap I also wash dishes and other menial shit but I really do enjoy cooking . I've been there two years working up from kitchen bitch and gone through several chefs . Right now have a down and out Michelin 2 star quality guy heading the ship . Get along , good laugh. Asshole , but is teaching me lots , enough that I've been offered a free course nvq in food ( I've not had time to really follow it )

Tldr : Doing more in a kitchen , finally experimenting small time on my own terms . Stressful . Loving it
