Blunt, as ever.

Blunt, as ever.

Tom Colicchio has no interest in sugar-coating the industry, and in this video for the Discovery Channel, he hammers home that a chef's job is to run a kitchen and be the boss, and that even becoming a sous-chef could take five to ten years. Deflating and demystifying any notions of glamour and ego, he says none of it means you'll be on TV and that shouldn't matter. Rough! [Discovery via Fork in the Road/VV]
