My worst crap job goes way back to when I started work at the marriott food services in JFk airport (the places you buy the $5.00 hot dog before getting on your flight) I had just started as a mechanics apprentice and my frist job was to clean out grease traps ( that had not been cleaned in years) I mean dozens of traps.. Some so full we needed crow bars to pry up the lids.... Oh my god what a stench and mess...... I could not get the smell out of me..

  22. I have got a request from a party client, they want creme brulees flavored like a pepsi, I was thinking that i would reduce a bunch of the soda and flavor the brulees with that, I only have to make a dozen so I thinking it is not worth the effort to track down some of the soda syrup.. any ideas ??? do you think it would work thanks
