My first evening .....the kitchen is a shambles , filthy dirty , rotten food in fridges ......I am suitably disgusted , but hold my tongue as its the first day .
My second day .....kitchen is a little cleaner , the Head/Exec chef is no where to be seen ..apparently he only likes doing mornings , the Sous chef sits on his bum in the office .... , everyone comments on how nice the food is ( from yours truly) and how well the food is presented . Once again I go home shattered .
My third day ....pretty much like the previous
My fourth day .....Mr Head/Exec chef rips me a new one ,as I'm not following set guidelines ( however management didn't complain at what I sent) , there is a function tonight for 300 ( it'll be my first at this hotel) , I was in fact expected to cook and send this on my own as well as run the restaurant kitchen as well as a ****load of prep for today ....the head/Exec chef went home at 1.30 pm ...he changed my days off without telling me ....thank goodness the sous chef came in and gave me a hand , I know I'm pretty good but I don't think I could have coped with the service from hell and all the other stuff that went on .
I am quite sure that I was being set up for a fall , that perhaps mr head/exec chef is running scared and thinks I'm a threat ?
I'll be quite interested to read your replies
