/img/vbsmilies/smilies/chef.gif I don't understand where you are coming from "this is a food forum" not a drug forum.And there are things that we did in the past, that we should have never done and shouldn't try to do again. When I think about the fact that the statin drugs like Lipitor, Mevacor, Crestor, Zocor...are prescribed by the millions because of the American epidemic of heart disease, due to atherosclerosis, and how we used to slowly poach fish in goose fat, my own LDL numbers spike. There's a tremendous amount we old timers can and should learn from the youth in the industry. We have to listen when they're talking, too.
I was refering to making our own stocks and cooking fresh vegetables instead of frozen.
Where I took my apprenticeship in a 300 room hotel the only freezer we had was in the pantry for ice cream. When we had to do an ice carving it was about an hour before the event that the ice was delivered. and I have never heard of poaching fish in goose fat. "yucK"
And the only drugs we had in the kitchen was aspirin for a headache.
When I do listen when they are talking they are usually "asking for more money or time off "or"can I have a steak for lunch or when are we going to air condition the kitchen"
If you are refering to the younger so-called chefs with their "cookbooks and degrees" I think they still have got a lot to learn yet, although some are trying, so are "too smart already"/img/vbsmilies/smilies/cool.gif
