Kitchens have always been a place to make people look and feel stupid. That's why it takes a certain breed of people to work in restaurants. We have done everything to haze the FNG's (F'n New Guys) that we could come up with. Telling the bus boy to empty the hot water from the coffee machine, or fill up the water fountain before clocking out are a couple good ones. There is always telling the new salad guy to hurry up and get a bucket of steam from the steam machine downstairs or having them run to a neighboring kitchen to borrow the meat stretcher.
Well, today I had a cook bring in this terrific can of dehydrated water. The can list its uses which include dry mopping, dry cleaning and my favorite is making dry ice. Its just a great idea. Being able to put an actual can of dehydrated water on the shelf. The instructions are easy too, empty contents into one gallon of water. Stir until dissolved. Chill and serve. Good luck FNG, good luck.
I can honestly say, having this type of work environment isn't for everyone. But, for the dedicated people who put all there effort into the fast paced, somewhat unforgiving career that we chose,lets keep the new guys wondering why the hell they took this path.
