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.

grot, woo
I've been working in the industry for a while now, and suffice to say i've seen some, how do I put this, interesting things. Complaints about extra protein (a catapillar in a salad, rest assured there was extra protein in there when it went back out!), to women not demanding not to be charged for meals her children had ordered without her knowing.

My favorite has to be though when I was working as the duty manager in a pub with a couple of function rooms. We used to put on "disco nights" ie Dodgy Dave the Dealing DJ, some food that wouldn't look out of place at a tramps wedding, and loads and loads of sad desperate lonely middle aged people. Ocassionally we'd do functions for people leaving 6th form. Great.

To cut a long story short, They didn't realise that we had CCTV EVERYWHERE, including the couple of smaller side rooms, much fun was had copying some of the grot that we witnessed on those tapes, some of it even good enough to sell on to their friends. Hooray for "homemade porn". Oh yeah, and it did entertain the kitchen staff on the extra moniter we had installed "to help us assess if anything needed our attention"

Not sorry for length, you love it.
