    Worst things about being a Chef

    Something i hate is when situations arise and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it (not always can you improve or help things), and you get crap for it and they blame everything on you like it's all your fault, completely ridiculous, they act like everyone can't make mistakes but...

    Need help in gaining an apprenticeship in catering

    Electronic knife Sharpening or by hand which is better?

    Hmm... theirs no combo stone at 800 - 2k at the moment mostly just single stones, i also read it's better to get single stones than combo stones for different levels of sharpening like a lower grit stone for really blunt knives then the higher up you go the more it cleans it up and sharpens them...
