Your most embarrassing moment in the kitchen: I was having a heated conversation with another chef in the kitchen, and in mid-sentence, a temporary tooth flew out of my mouth and landed on the floor in front of the whole staff. The most embarrassing part was picking the tooth back up off the floor. There was a lot of laughter in the kitchen that day.
