Culinary Quote Dump Day: People in kitchens can be dangerous

 

“It’s amazing the relationships you forge in a kitchen. When you cooperate in an environment that’s hot. Where there’s a lot of knives. You’re trusting your well-being with someone you’ve never before met or known.”

~ Alexandra Guarnaschelli


“my college doesn’t allow us to carry pepper spray for self defense cause they claim its a weapon.

i’m at culinary school.

every single student is carrying several hundred dollars worth of knives around with them and they teach classes on how to break down whole animals easily with said knives.

but no pepper spray.

no that’s way too dangerous”

“This is a world where everyone you work with has plenty of boiling liquids, blunt objects and sharp knives ready at hand. Have a sense of humor – you’ll need it.”

~ Chef Harold (posted on Chef2Chef.net)


“Those who are so eager for women and girls to go back to the kitchen might think again about just what it is we might be up to in there. You can plan a lot of damage from a kitchen. It’s also where the knives are kept.”

~ Laurie Penny


“Do not taunt a man for wearing chef pants. He has sharper knives than you, and he knows how to use them.”

A response to the culinary school spam/link in the comment section

If you are interested in attending culinary school, or would like to find out how to get training without going to culinary school–go to www.Chef2Chef.net and talk to chefs who have received their training in various ways.  I received great advice from the forums there, and they aren't afraid to be blunt.  I haven't visited the forums in the last year, so I should probably go back myself.
