For the first time this season, we assemble a few trusty members of our Chef’s Council for an All Shop Talk episode about one of the least considered members of the kitchen team: The Dishwasher. Many of the best chefs in the USA accidentally began their careers doing this important job, including our guests: The Finch’s Gabe McMackin and Sous Chef author Michael Gibney. Gabe and Mike talk about dishwashing as a gateway to the kitchen lifestyle, the role of a dishwasher in the pro kitchen, and what makes a great one. A surprisingly fascinating topic tackled in depth.
