I don’t eat meat on Friday, but I’m a Culinary student, and a rule of the kitchen is “You have to try everything”. Normally this is fine, even moreso because I don’t usually have class on Friday. I do sometimes, however, because of a holiday the next week (such as this week; We have Memorial Day off, so we have class tonight).
Well we had a buffet tonight and luckily it was a ‘just take what you want’ deal. Chef said I would really enjoy this one item and I said “I can’t have any, I can’t eat meat on Fridays”. He just grinned and said “Oh? Fish day?” and I nodded. So tonight it was fine but I was wondering, what if this happens again and I have to try it? For vegetarians the Chefs say they have to chew it, taste it, and then they can spit it out, because it is very important to know how something is supposed to taste. Would that be an acceptable alternative? What would the ‘ruling’ have been on this Pre-V II?
The seafood and veggie items in the buffet were great though!
