“When I was working in Vietnam, one of the chefs-in-training cut off all of his fingertips with a mandolin. Like, straight across, all of them gone.

Eventually he got thrown out of the kitchen.”—-Chef Spike Mendelsohn of D.C.’s Good Stuff Eatery and We The Pizza, dishing up his most ghastly kitchen horror story to Grub Street
