This fortnight, Love Letters to Chefs asks you to look at your team culture and how it impacts work-life balance.
Does your kitchen feed the myth of ‘busy’ness, chef? That unless you’re seen to be producing work – seen being the operative word here – you hold no value? Do you expect your chefs to justify every moment of their existence, without giving them a moment to pause for breath?
This is what you have to see: that the opportunities to recover your balance lie first and foremost in those moments.
