Hi, what's up with These Chefs such as Rocco who Has Breakdowns and Yells at his Chef
Hi, I've noticed on some of these restaurant shows or even "The Restaurant" that some of the Chefs seem to have breakdowns and yell at the beginning Chefs or Chefs. Is this how most Chefs act in that they yell at those below them and are mean? What's up with that? I mean don't you think Chefs that yell at others are immature and can't hold in their anger? What do you think?
Why do they have to have such an immature fit and yell at others? What's up with that? I wouldn't want to give money to these restaurants in which the Chefs are so mentally abusive and yell at others in such a cruel manner.

There will also be a one week reality show re: another chef and his resturant on the Food Network.

It started last night, and continues until Friday. It's called "Jamie's Kitchen" with Jamie Oliver. The show is on The Food Network at 10:00 PM EDT, plus it repeats later in the evening. I understand there will be a marathon run of all five episodes in a week or two. Check the listings for The Food Network for more information.

Now you see me...
Whoa, so people are finally comparing Rocco to my Thom over here? And the second that happens, the forum is all but abandoned..lol
Yes, Rocco is a jackass. The least he can do as a manager and owner is to get on his management's cases about problems, rather than just ignoring them until they become so big he goes into offensive tizzy fits.
To correct every member of the waitstaff when a competent manager could have done it is just stupid, and blaming employees in front of customers was hella-tacky.
But in the end for me, jackass or not, he is a very attractive one. And what is reality tv about? eye candy...entertainment...contro versy. This show had it all.
I'm just amazed it came off as cleanly as it did. I'm sure that if half of the restaurants in my neighborhood were broadcast behind the scenes on national television, the health department would immediately shut them down, half of Chicago would come down with dry heaves, and the boss's wife would file for divorce, and those are just the decent restaurants.

Talk about an ego-maniac. I was a fan of Bobby Flay, up until the time he was on Iron Chef. Then he was very unprofessional and egotistical. I know that most chefs have a little bit of ego about them, but geez! Then on his other show Food Nation. I have noticed that he talks differently to home cooks than he does to professionals.

As for Rocco. I like him, but I think he needs to make sure that all his ducks are in a row. Go down in the kitchen and make sure everything is ready there. Do some of the cooking. One of the best night he had on the show, he was down in the cooking.
And I don't know if it was just creative editing, but the people they selected sure were a bunch of petty, sniping, whiners.
I think Rocc was trying too hard to please everyone (employees). I was kind of upset when he talked down about Topher in front of the guests. But I think he needs to learn.
