After the kitchen has finished serving up the restaurant orderd for the night, and the washing up is done, the work is not over.
Everyone is tired.
Any kitchenhands have wearily knocked off.
The waiters are closing down for the night.
The last stragglers of diners are in tete a tete over the remnants of their wine.
The front office is reconciling their shift and ready to go home.
But the chefs are straight into the work of preparing for the following morning's breakfast.
Breakfast starts early, nothing like being prepared, no nasty surprises first up.
So continues life under the long white Chef's hat.
