A Chef Said

jhopp217 | Jun 17, 2012 04:36 AM

Was at a BBQ a few weeks ago and one of the guests was a chef that owns three restaurants in NYC. Someone asked him what his favorite things to eat are and he quickly replied "anything anyone else is cooking and a Big Mac." I laughed and I said "a Big Mac?" He said "yep, I know everything that goes into it and the sauce and I still can't make it as good." Had to be the weirdest thing I've ever heard. I personally think Big Macs are disgusting, but was shocked to hear someone, who I believed to have a discerning palette, praise it.

I know we all have our odd guilty pleasure, but I can't imagine having the luxury of being a chef and settling for a Big Mac.
