A cut, a burn, a broken plate - what’s the worst mistake you’ve ever made in the kitchen? A dropped pancake? Burned chicken? How about nominating to do a job you have no idea how to do? Over the past few years we’ve been asking some of the world’s best chefs to share with us a story about a time they really messed up in the kitchen, a mistake they made that will live with them forever.
It’s easy for us to forget that chefs, the ones who execute work every day that pursues perfection, make mistakes, but they do. In fact, speak with any of the world’s great chefs and they’ll tell you that the mistakes are more important than the successes.
The next chef to reveal their Chef Mistake is Gaggan Anand from the Gaggan restaurant in Bangkok, talking about his early days working in a hotel.
In a hilarious story, the world famous chef talks about how he confused a European omelette with something from his home country.
