i was a chef for 15 years and these are just a few things i've noticed
the food you eat at your table gets handled more by bare hands in the kitchen then you ever would at your table eating it, believe me on this.
if something is dropped, its usually just picked up and ran under cold water even raw meats/fish
if something is past the expiration date it will still get used 100% of the time if there is no discoloration or smell
don't be fooled, people rarely wash their hands, even after coming in from a smoke/bathroom
if you are an ass hole of a guest, don't be surprised if your food gets fucked with, i've seen people spit on food(this was a LONG time ago).
don't get me wrong for the most part kitchens are very clean and this stuff doesn't happen that much at all. also, i am no longer a professional chef haha
I believe this.
Whats more crazy is covid aware people who order out.
