Been thinking about what the worst things about being a chef are, apart from working long hours being stood on your feet all day, i tried to list and name a few things that make a chefs life harder - when nature calls in-between service, and you put it off for as long as possible, then when you finally get there you realise your apron is tied in a knot. - finding the time and opportunity to make yourself a brew without anyone else noticing. - vegans, celiac's, and vegetarians. - when the fridge/freezer door shuts and you need to get back in it again but the door won't pull open. had a few more that i thought of that i would like to this thread when i remember, please add your own worst things about being a chef. in the meantime i try to think of some more and maybe make a thread about the best things about being a chef and compare the two. would be good to see the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.
