"Chef's Perks"

Growing up, if you cooked, you were allowed to sneak a few of the ingredients as you went. This was referred to as "chef's perks" The most common was licking the spoon/bowl after making a cake --until the salmonella in raw eggs thing.

tonight (and a couple of nights ago) I cooked with mushrooms and sneaked so many pieces raw I almost needed to prep more.

What are your favorite "chef's perks?"

I think "Chef's perks" is more sneaking thinks that are not necessary..... tasting the final product is a Chefcessity?

The extra salty & fatty bits of the meat (to be fair, this is more of a "who gets what piece served to them" than a mid-cooking thing) and that extra bacon slice that just won't seem to fit evenly on the plate of paper towels.

The best chicken finger that comes out gets to go to the one cooking them. Other than that, not much

I might taste juuuust a bit of the bourbon when I make BBQ sauce.

Y'know, to make sure it isn't poisoned.
