Some dumb questions about "Kitchen Confidential"

christina z | Jul 19, 2000 07:43 AM

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.


Want to stay up to date with this post?
