It is not unusual to be in a professional kitchen and share a space that is far less than "spacey".I am wondering what some of the worst "space" issues that other chefs have experienced. I am currently working the pantry and dessert stations, which are back to back. I am usually by myself most of the time, working both stations. But when there is a rush, there are two bodies in the cramped space (barely a foot and a half wide, with both of us always "butt bumping". I am so relieved that my "spacemate" is someone who is petite. Had it been someone large, I don't think that I would be able to move around at all.
