Ha, I don't work with you and hold you to standards that anyone who cooks for a living should hold.

Ok, I'm just going to say it. Saria, don't hate me, but....

I thought the rant about "hotel cooks" was mean. We get it. You are a chef, but I thought the way you spoke about them was a little cruel, especially since you just said they were nice people.

I get that working with people who suck, well sucks. Is there any thing you can do to change it? Can you suggest some sort of regular meetings to talk about techniques or classes once a month. I'm sure to some of these people, this is a job and a way to feed their kids. They are never going to be chefs or care as much as you. some of them may have never been properly trained. I know its frustrating, but is there anything that can be done? Sounds like these people need to be re/trained
Can I order a veggie burger with bacon? Does that make any sense?
My husband just asked me to check his email for something since he can't do it from work. OMG. He never deletes emails. He has things in there from January. That would drive me crazy!


It's not mean, it's the truth. I'm a cook. Hotel cooks become complacent and get into terrible habits. A lot of it because they basically want to heat and serve food. It's lazy. Most of these people went to school to become chefs or at the very least started cooking because it interested them, not as a simple means to earn money or because it was the only job they could get. They're not new. Most have worked in restaurants at some point. Restaurant cooks in NY, many immigrants, do in fact do this as a way to earn a living, and there are some terrible ones, but they still wouldn't keep those chives. And working in restaurants doesn't allow them to get away with things that they get away with in a hotel.

Basically, they're no different than plenty of other cooks I've worked with (as evidenced by previous rants), but whereas in a restaurant you'll be able to weed them out and overall there's a good mix of good cooks versus bad ones, in hotels they're pretty much representative of the skill level.

As fun as it would be to report back I have declined the invitation.

Also, this made me think of CL:

I'll also add that not developing a crust on something like a lentil burger is inexcusable. That is pure, unadulterated laziness. It's an incredibly basic, cooking 101 concept. So, I might even understand lack of knowledge when it comes to cooking protein and lack of sense as to why you're doing something that really makes no sense, but getting a crust on foods like crab cakes and burgers is fundamental.
Remind me to never cook for Saria. I couldn't handle the pressure.

I always order a burger without onions and onion rings. Which probably isn't quite as weird as a veggie burger with bacon. I don't see anything wrong with it, I'm not vegetarian and I like veggie burgers. I don't eat it as a meat replacement an I think bacon would be good on it.


Chia seeds are so good to chew on in my smoothie. New favorite. And no, lady at Trader Joe's, no Chia pet is sprouting in my stomach after eating them.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
