Bow To The Bread

Squid Tentacles And Chicken Feet

Should aspiring chefs go to culinary school? How do you ask for a raise when you’re earning less than minimum wage?What's 'the mandatory fourteen'? Braden Chong and David Schwartz are young cooks sweating out long, back-breaking days. And they eat a lot. Along with other young cooks in Toronto, they document their high-carb staff meals and late night eats on Budsnacks, a communally shared Instagram account Host Corey Mintz joins Braden and David on a double-breakfast eating spree—jumping from a mountain of chicken feet and turnip cakes at Dim Sum King to more fancified plates cooked up by Schwartz at his new restaurant, Omaw — where they talk about learning how to avoid being exploited by chefs, and then, how to avoid exploiting cooks once you become the chef. Basically: how to grow up and survive in the restaurant industry, while eating your weight in dumplings.
