Chef Shares 15 Unwritten Laws of the Kitchen
From Fine Dining Lovers - February 6, 2018

All kitchens have a set of unwritten laws that everyone working there knows to abide by, or at least if they do not, they are forced to learn pretty quickly. And if they ca not stick to them, then they will soon find themselves exiting via the back door.

Professional chef Paul Sorgule, who has decades of experience in kitchens has previously written about these unwritten laws, and in a new post over on his Harvest America Ventures blog, has added 15 more.

If you have ever spent any time in a professional kitchen, you are sure to recognise most of these, but are there any missing? Let us know over on our Facebook page.

15 Unwritten Laws of the Kitchen

1. PUT YOUR CELL PHONE AWAY

Being separated from your phone for 10 or more hours a day is probably a blessing.

2. KEEP POLITICAL VIEWS OUT OF THE KITCHEN

We should do everything possible to bring team members together rather than find ways to drive a wedge between opposing views.

3. SUPPORT YOUR TEAM

All for one and one for all is the rule of thumb in functional kitchens.

4. BE ON YOUR GAME

There is no excuse!

5. CLEANLINESS ALWAYS

Cleanliness in a kitchen is a constant.

6. TAKE CARE OF THOSE INGREDIENTS

Cooks are only as good as the raw materials they work with. These ingredients deserve a cooks respect.

7. ITS A BUSINESS OF PENNIES

Cooks understand what things cost in a kitchen. The fate of the restaurant is in the hands of every employee.

8. NO ROOM FOR DULL KNIVES

9. FEET, HANDS, AND BACK

10. DONT PUNCH DOWN MY ADRENALINE

11. COLD PANS DONT WORK

12. SIMMERDONT BOIL
