24 Hours In The Life of a Chef

File this under the note: why I prefer to eat fancy restaurants not work in them. Louisa Chu, globe trotting chef and owner of the blog Movable Feast, has given us her own version of 24 -- twenty four hours in her life as a Chef at the two-star Les Ambassadeurs in Paris. It's a quick and entertaining behind-the-scenes look at what really talented cooks do all day long. It's also exhausting just to read. Check it out.
