    Wow. This really takes me back. I no longer am able to work at all, but most of my working life was in restaurants. I dreamt of being a chef, or even allowed to work the line, but not having a penis really held me back. Nonetheless, I did eventually move from front of house to back, and this whole film is just so real. One of the greatest gifts I received from restaurant work is the ability to share space effectively, and efficiently; also, the teamwork thing discussed, relative to the noodle station was so beautiful, and so very true. I miss that. In my home, I am the only one able to take up only the space I need to work. My mother takes up all space available, and a bit in her orbit.😉

    Fantastic documentary! Only comment in the interest of food handling disease prevention: mask touching as a chef with gloves on should result in an immediate change in gloves. Small observation but sound germ theory advice. A true need in the culinary world - a mask that does not require repositioning /adjustment frequently. In isolated events - just change gloves. Hand and germ consciousness is hard to teach and train: even we in the medical profession get it wrong.
