    High perceived value/low cost proteins

    Breaking down and boning out whole chickens. You could use the bones and back for stock. Nothing would go to waste except the skin..

    This is why I got out of the restaurant/hotel portion of the biz and also why I get burnt eggs when I go out to breakfast. The restaurant industry is going to the chains. In 1990 I could afford an apartment, car, food, dating, saving, etc. making $10 bux an hour. Today, I'd have to live in a...

    How do you guys keep hollandaise sauce hot during service?

    Personally I will not use or eat Knorr. It's nasty and a mockery of the classic mother. As a customer, it's worth the wait for the kitchen to make more. If you can't do it right why do it at all? It can be held for up to four hours and then needs to be tossed. I use a thermos too. Works great...

    Negative kitchen team

    A toxic environment is the responsibility of management. They let this exist so talking to them about it is most likely futile. Either put up with it or find a new position elsewhere. It it were me I would find a new job.

    Don't forget about the corporate landlords. They are one of many reasons for the homeless crisis we are in today. They come in and buy up old, affordable apartment buildings with existing tenets, kick em out, demolish and rebuild then proceed to charge as much and 100% more for rent. The people...

    Having Children Working in this Industry

    Well said sgsvirgil, it takes a team.. When human emotions are part of any equation all practicality tends to go out the door.. Especially with a mini version of yourself.. cheflayne, you seem like a well rounded individual, thank you for taking my retort in a mature and humors manner.
