What It's Like to Work in a Michelin-Starred Restaurant

New, 1 comment

A cook at LA's Mélisse restaurant shows cooks how it's done.

Here's a video produced by the Foodie Channel that follows sous chef Joseph Johnson as he works his way up the chain of command at Los Angeles' Michelin-starred Mélisse, which is owned by chef Josiah Citrin. Johnson's day starts early and ends late, but in between those long hours he creates some of the city's most beautiful dishes. Johnson talks about how difficult a cook's life is, and how much he loves it: "If you want to be a chef, you can't wait around for someone to hand it to you... you have to take it."
