Commis v Lobster
A sous chef was teaching a commis how to cook lobster in large roasting trays. “You’ve got to keep them moving, if they turn orange, they’re fucked!” ”Keep shaking the trays, DO NOT LET THEM CHANGE COLOUR” Anyone who knows about these things, knows that when raw lobster gets hot, it changes colour, the commis didn’t so five minutes later a terrified commis is shaking the life out of the roasting trays, screaming “Chefffffffffff!!!!! It’s turning orange and it won’t stop!!”
Have you ever been sent to the stores for a long stand, asked to find the soufflé pump or some chicken lips or perhaps a left handed palette knife!
