The dark creatures of the restaurant kitchen -- VERMIN! -- are necessary to learn about but certainly no fun.
Unless one is privileged to be in Chef John Meidinger's Safety & Sanitation class at the California Culinary Academy. Chef John took guitar in hand on Tuesday, picked out "the only three or four chords I know," and sang the ballad of "Integrated Pest Management." Most memorable lyrics:
Close the doors,
Clean the floors.
When the mice get in,
They make a lot of love.
