I’d like to see more decent work life balance. But you know what? That’s only achievable if there are enough chefs to cover enough shifts to do straights instead of splits. But as one man, how much can I do about that? So it’s a bit of a pipe dream at the moment, but I live in hope.
Shayne Lewis has carved his own niche in the hospitality industry. And aren’t we glad he did! His Lean To Kitchen has been my go to brand of sauces forever!

But it’s worth the read, trust me. And I haven’t taken out the language… it’s how it is.
Meet Paul Foreman for Chef Talk. “A perfect service is like a perfect orchestra. It’s music to watch, and experience. Even behind the pass.”
