Chef culture creeps me the fuck out!
I mean, it's even stranger than the military (as far as rank structure). The reverence newbies show for "Chefs" is more like bdsm slave to master.
I was around a wanna-be chef friend who took me to his work after hours for some drinks. They were all like "yes chef" and "no chef' and tip-toeing around this goofy douche like he actually mattered. I just wanted to tell him "shut the fuck up and go make me a waffle, asshole". Jesus!
I know the reality-tv chef shows are over dramatized. But even that makes me sick. Anthony Bourdain is a complete shit-head on those shows. I'd be like "look dude, I saw you eat the hibachi'd ass-end out of a nutra-rat in the sewers of Bangladesh... so step off my creme brulee! Nasty motherfucker".
I mean... why can't they just be like "oh hey kid, you like to cook, awesome, so do I... Let me show you how to fry up some chicken".
Speaking of waffles though... Waffle House cooks: now they deserve the respect.
