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.

Extra protein
As a callow youth I worked in various pub kitchens as a combined kitchen porter/sous chef/waiter/dogsbody.

One particularly busy day it was all hands to the pump as we were short-staffed. An order for a salad came in so I set to washing the ingredients and preparing it. Got it plated up and delivered to the hippy sat at the table.

I was accosted by the same hippy a few moments later, who motioned me to move closer so he could whisper "There's a little problem with my food. I wouldn't mind but I'm a vegetarian."

He moved aside a lettuce leaf and there was a live worm wriggling around on his plate. He was a cool guy and could see we were very busy and he didn't mind getting the same salad again so long as I put the worm outside in one of the flowerbeds.
