AG muses on the violence in professional kitchens. The worst kitchen violence story I heard was pretty bad: my sous chef reported one of his chefs at culinary school was doing a stage at Daniel. There was some trouble on the line between chefs, one of whom kept screwing up but not taking the blame, thereby getting others in trouble (big no no in the kitchen, you own up to your fuck ups in a kitchen). Finally, the unfairly-blamed chef snapped, and grabbing his chef's knife, he stabbed the other chef! Of course this story came out right after I said, "I've got the card of the person who arranges stages at Daniel. I was thinking of doing one..." I never did follow up.
