The Gypsy's Drudge:
The Gypsy Hag:
A cheerful restaurant, good food and fine wine spell gracious living for some.
But the men who prepare the food work in a noisy, sweaty world - in kitchens that would give the average housewife nightmares. They roast and stew and bake in a kind of madhouse of shouted commands, cancelled orders and frayed tempers.
The hungry have scant patience so it's constantly a race against the clock by men who can make anyone's mouth water except, it seems, their own. What makes them work long hours for modest pay, often underground in steaming hot conditions?
