I started at a new place recently and its going great except a few minor issues. However, one main issue I couldn't get pass is how heavy my chef likes to salt everything. I would cook things and everyone would agree its perfect ( I have a very subtle but good sense of taste) then my chef would come and say it needs more salt, he would dose it with salt, capers, fish sauce, soy sauce, whatever he can find closest to him! The first time he did that I thought it was kinda odd but then again my father was heavy on the salt as well but this is a restaurant you have to please the mass not just yourself!
I thought I was loosing my mind when he did this but being I am under him, I have to follow his rules. I would cringe everytime I send out a dish with his exact amount of salt. I thought I was the crazy one until I found a bunch of bad reviews from our customers about how "the food are f*cking insane amounts of salt" or "I felt like I was swollen for days" to "I needed a 5th beer to get through this meal" to just quote a few.
Chef is in his mid twenty and its his first gig as head. How do I go about this? He damn well reads the review but continue to over salt.
Also been driving me crazy but what do you call these people who have heavy taste for salt?
