Oh, you have worked in kitchens for five years and you have been a sous-chef in two "fine dining" restaurants? THEN WHY CAN'T YOU MAKE FUCKING AIOLI??? You are not "classically trained," and it is obvious that you don't even know what that means. You are not worth training unless you are humble, respect food, love cooking, and, yes, are humble again. There is nothing worse than an overconfident cook. I will take someone who doesn't know shit but has a good attitude over you any day. Fuck you, Seattle cook. You are not willing to put in the time and effort to be as good as you imagine you are. Learn how to season something before you throw micogreens and fennel pollen on everything.
