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.

The missus
The lovely Mrs. V works in a pub in central London (occasionally frequented by b3tans) and I have to say that in the two years I've known her, and I've helped out in the kitchen or just stood there hanging out while she's working, I've never seen any incidents of taking revenge on customers by abusing their food. Nor have I seen any shocking lapses in hygeine - they occasionally get mice, but the building is 250+ years old and very close to the tube station, so it's only to be expected. She even prepares the meals above and beyond the standards of the pub chain she works for, using fresh ingredients instead of frozen, that sort of thing. So sorry if this isn't amusing, but at least when I order my meal in the pub I know the exact conditions under which it was prepared (by my girl with tender loving care) and best of all I don't have to pay for it.
