the whole staff at that restaurant is known for their partying.
But how does the food taste? Who cares what they do, as long as the food taste great!

My family won't say anything as long as the food is suitable to keep them satisfied. To me, a good meal is better than ANYthing! Just my opinion.

That's certainly not unheard of in the biz.

So if all good chefs drink, I must be a terrible cook? Now that we know they are all closet drunks and alcoholics, does anybody know why?
What drives them to drink so much? I cook all the time, even in a restaurant for awhile, and was never inspired to drink like that. I just never made the connection between drinking and cooking, always kept em separate.

Mav, it's not like someone has to hold me up so my beschamel doesn't burn. LOL

I also like tasting the wine I'll be serving with dinner when I'm cooking. I give the whole theme a head start, if you will. (hic)

I know more than one. But I also HATE generalizations of any type. Drinking certainly is not a requirement of a good cook/chef.

Now where's that Krug????

The only time I screwed up cooking cuz I was drinking was an apple crisp....
I forgot to put the sugar in the topping.
It was gross.
But the chardonnay was AWESOME!!!!

Does this mean that bad chefs don't drink?

I will drink while cooking at home but never ever on the job. Drinking takes all the fun out of cooking and cooking takes ALL the fun out of drinking.( my own personal quote). After work at night now that's a whole other story because after a hard shift it's hard to unwind and get the adrenaline down.
