I can vouch for at least 44 of them.

First kitchen concept I taught the hubs was prep (he runs around saying mise in front of his friends now) and I do give him credit for wanting to help, but why oh why does he stand right where I need to be (EVERY TIME!).

It's like he studied my recipes and made schematics so he will know where I will need to be next.....

Made him watch a bunch of Top Chef quickfires and it helped not one bit.

So I continue to cook and he continues to stand and when I have to reach around him to grab a knife laser.gif he has learned to move, lol.

I was going to disagree with #1 about an hour ago seeing as it's been a solid two months since a cut or burn

Then some rogue split pea soup splashed out of the Cambro as I was transferring it. #1 is again confirmed
