This is a question Restaurants, Kitchens and Bars... Oh my!

Many years ago, I went out with a chef. Kitchens are merely vice dens with food. You couldn't move for people bonking and snorting coke in the store room. And the things they did with the food...

My personal vice was chocolate mousse - I remember it being very calming in all the chaos around me. I think they put things in it.

Tell us your stories of working in kitchens, bars and the rest of the nightmare that is the catering trade.

Having dropped out on Uni, I temped for several months making a well-known hair dye and instant custard powder.

The hair dye turned my fingernails black - I also had to ensure the correct pH by adding acid. I'm glad I studied chemistry. Actually, I studied French - don't ever use hair dye.

And don't ever use instant custard powder. I made it using what was basically a large concrete mixer - and the number of fingernails, bits of skin, hair, etc that went into it makes me queasy thinking of it...
