:: Server Stories: Oops ::
I'm a little out of it most mornings but Sunday kinda sucked when I woke up with one of those stuffy noses where you can't breath in the morning but it's gone by the afternoon. I'm working the bar that day so set up the mats, glasses and bar gear, and then I cut fruit and make whipped cream for the desserts. I go to the prep room, toss in all the ingredients (heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract), turn on the food processor and go put my work shirt on. When I return, it's just about done. I scoop out the whip into the jug and I get a little on my fingers in the process so I lick it off.

Oh, yuck. What the fuck?

It's nasty. My first thought was that the heavy cream went bad. I sniff (or try to) the empty carton and it's fine. What the fuck? The chef walks in, sees my face, and asks what's wrong. I show him the whip. He smells it, looks at me and starts laughing. "What's so funny?" I ask. He points to the shelf where we keep the vanilla extract. It's a little disorganized and the labels are faded. I grab the bottle and turn it around.

It's fish sauce.

The vanilla is right next to bottle of fish sauce, and since both of the labels were turned around, they look pretty much identical. I guess if my nose were ok I would have noticed it sooner. There's been a few times where someone might turn the cream into butter, but this has to be a first. Lucky for me, the owner was upstairs doing paperwork so she was none the wiser.
