A Chef Reveals What Goes on Behind the Scenes in a Restaurant Kitchen. You’ll Be Surprised by What You See!

A chef that works at the Casbah Mediterranean Kitchen and Wine Bar wanted to reveal what exactly goes on behind the scenes at a high-end restaurant.

These guys take their work seriously and work long hours but also take time to have a bit of fun. And just like this McDonald’s employee helping a disabled elderly man with his meal, restaurant chefs often go above and beyond what their job description entails.

The foods we eat at restaurants are made by people who have a passion for food and these chefs really showcase that.

This chef has worked in a kitchen his entire life and gets to do what he loves for a living.
