I did a quick search for info before embarrassing
myself by asking these questions about "Kitchen
Confidential". Either I'm not a good search artist
or this info is such common knowledge that it
never hit the boards. Anyway, about the book -
What is a "dupe"? Is it a written food order?
What is a "commis"? I gather it's a cooking position
with less status than that of line cook but I'm not sure.
Lastly, who is (was?) "Bigfoot"?
BTW, I'm really loving the book.
