I was recently interviewing chef\\\\s for a large client of mine who had let go of his chef. My client is a very high profiled celebrity in New York City and I was tasked with finding a replacement. I was doing my research and came along this particular individual and called her to see if it was a good fit. Despite the red flags over her not having more than a free website listing at some generic business listing, as well as her disheveled appearance and obvious lack of what I would call a middle class education, I agreed to allow her to prepare a meal for me to give her a shot. Well, to make a long story short, I gave her specific instructions on what the meal was to include (per my client\\\\s requests it was a filet mignon) and figured she would at least get the preparation of the meal correct. Before too long it became obvious that whatever experience this fool had it was in the back of the turnip truck she figured I fell out of. Her ingredients were clearly old and looked to have been sitting in her refrigerator for weeks. She failed to follow even a single instruction and while preparing the meal didn\\\\t shut up long enough about how she felt she should be on some stupid television show for cooks. As the meal was completed it looked edible (barely) and since I had gone this far I decided not to be completely rude and gave it a try. How she was able to make a steak taste like a piece of fish is beyond me but let\\\\s just say after my 3rd bite it was clear I was going to be sick. Wouldn\\\\t you know it I woke up the next day with a severe case of food poisoning and this excuse for a chef had the audacity to send an invoice for her \\\"efforts\\\". Do not walk, RUN if Shays cooking service happens to be a possibility for personal chef services. Her food tastes the way she looks and is exactly what you would expect from a 3rd grader which is about the extent of her intelligence.
