How to kindly tell my green restaurant owner to step back from the kitche
One thing is for sure here.
This is ripe for a confrontation unless you nip this in the bud immediately.
You must sit down with him and speak plainly about your concerns.
They hired YOU to be the Chef and that needs to be the basis for everything else.
Then..................You may want to offer your services as a mentor and teacher to this guy if all else fails.
Finally i already speaks to him, we have big kitchen meeting last Monday and i also tell him that the boys feel intimidate because the fact that sometimes he make changes (either forgot to add some items or add extra ingredients in it) on my recipe and its so hard for the boys because their kinda lost whom to follow and now is clear that he realize that he need to step back but will help on any kind of prep but strictly follow my recipes and he also for the moment just learn from seeing us doing service and not interfere or anything until he learns thing or two and then join us for service and he also agree to follow all my instructions as like any other commis, he also decided to study culinary at cordon bleu which is good. So hopefully everything its sorted now and i hope he can hold on to his promise to let me control whole kitchen process and not interfere anymore.. Thank you for the tip chef
