I work as a pastry chef in a private kitchen and lately ive been getting grossed/nauseated out by the sight and smell of food, to the point where it is making me sick. This is no reflection of quality or sanitation, the food here is top notch and the kitchen is clean and sanitary. Its just the smells and sights are affecting me. I love food, love to cook and I thought it would pass but has been getting worse lately. For example, We made snapper soup the other day, and while I had some later (it was delicious) the smell of the soup being made was giving me the dry heaves I had to leave the line for about 10 minutes so my stomach could settle. Also watching the cooks butcher huge piles of chicken or meats is really grossing me out for some reason. The smell of peppers or mushrooms too. Again the food here is very good, and this not an attack on the cooks or the quality of food. It is not an allergy, the food tastes delicious but im reminded of when my wife was pregnant and lots of things would make her sick.. Does anyone else have an experience like this? Im hesitant to talk to chef about this because I don't want to sound like a weirdo. It is like being sea sick.
