    I love the fact they have the family meal straight before service. I used to work as a sous chef at the Boxwood Restaurant (Gordon Ramsay) and we had 2 services a day, and would get 2 x 15 min breaks the whole day. 1 just before lunch service and 1 just before evening service. It was horrendous! The shifts were 4 days on, 3 days off and by day 4 we were just zombies. The kitchen was a good 2-3 min walk from the staff kitchen in the hotel above and we would literally run to the kitchen, grab a plate full of food and a coffee and then run to the smoking area outside and sit there smoking, eating and drinking simultaneously! They also had this really slow checking in/out when you went through the staff entrance/exit so that would always take more time off your 15. I hated it. We would start at 07:30, work through till our break at about 12:15 and then our next break would be at 18:15 and then we'd finish at roughly midnight. Sometimes it would be slightly earlier, sometimes slightly later, especially if a group of pissed up city workers came in at the last minute and ordered the fkn tasting menu!!! I lived roughly 40mins away and the last train home was usually 12:05 and I would miss that last train so many times and end up having to get the night-bus to Putney Bridge and then walk the rest of the way to Southfields or get a taxi. The walk alone was 30 mins, easy, so when I would miss the last tube I wouldn't get into my bed until at least 01:45 - 02:00am and then back up at 06:30 to do it all over again! Anyone who thinks working in a fine dining/Michelin kitchen is anything like this Korean kitchen is sadly mistaken I'm afraid. The higher up the ranks you get, the more miserable it becomes! My juniours weren't even allowed to communicate with our Head Chef, it was forbidden. Only the Sous and Junior Sous chefa were allowed to talk to him. If he asked you a question direct, you would have to answer through either myself or one of the other sous's. How pretentious!!? Plus, the atmosphere in my kitchen was very edgy. No talking allowed, no small talk, just talking about orders and times etc. Gordon Ramsays' kitchens are literally the real kitchen nightmares!

The way they welcomed him into their environment and relentlessly fed him says words beyond what was even showed. This was an amazing insight upon the hard work it takes to be become top level at this craft. Subscribed and hope to eat here one day.

    I work as a cook in a small pub and its so interesting to see the contrasts between this and that. Some things are the same, but others are so different it is crazy. The place I work is kind of chaotic and the team does not have much synergy together so it makes me remorseful but impressed to see such a well oiled machine in their kitchen.
