This chef takes matters into his own hands when it comes to rice rinsing…who knew it could get so complicated!
Big Burritos at a Fast Pace!
Once upon a time, OP served as a cook in a fast-casual restaurant famous for their burrito size and guacamole price.
The restaurant was perpetually swarmed with customers, always understaffed, and OP worked diligently to keep up with the pace.
The Golden Rule of Rice
A curious rule reigned supreme in the kitchen: rinse the raw rice thrice “until the water runs clear”.
The ambiguity of the rule baffled OP. What constituted clear water?
Clearness Needed Clarity
Should it be three rinses regardless of water clarity? OP often opted for a single rinse or two, a shortcut that seemingly had no impact on customer satisfaction or the restaurant’s rice supply.
The Rule-Abiding Manager
Things took a dramatic turn when a certain manager, Miss Manager, decided to enforce the rules strictly.
She Just Didn’t Get it
Despite her understanding of the kitchen operations, Miss Manager failed to master the harmony of tasks and timing necessary for a smooth workflow.
OP had mastered this art and knew which corners could be cut safely.
The Rice Rinse Standoff
During a quiet shift, Miss Manager confronted OP about the rice rinsing procedure.
Promising to Follow Protocol
She insisted he strictly adhere to the ambiguous rule and demonstrate the water clarity before cooking the rice.
OP, staring straight into her eyes, promised to do so.
The Battle Begins
OP embarked on the rigorous rinsing routine, all under Miss Manager’s watchful eyes.
She left him to it, believing he would follow her orders.
The rinsing process became a tiring loop, slowly turning the grains of rice into mush.
The Price of Perfection
Due to the extended rinsing ritual, other essential kitchen tasks fell behind.
As Miss Manager reappeared, she was surprised to see OP still rinsing rice.
Was She Clear What Clear Meant?
OP emptied the rice water, asking her if it looked clear. It did not. OP then revealed he had rinsed the rice thirty-seven times.
Faced with unusable rice and an indignant cook, Miss Manager was cornered.
Back Down and Accept Shortcuts
She had no option but to back down from her stringent rule enforcement.
Unable to sack OP and incapable of taking over his role, she relented, finally admitting defeat.
The Sweet Taste of Victory
Chuckles echoed through the kitchen as OP went back to his tasks, victorious and more satisfied than ever.
Rules Made to Be Broken
The rice rinse rebellion had been won, and the chef returned to his culinary symphony.
