Glutton for Punishment

Episode Description

Waiter's Race

In the world of food and wine, waiters are the true unsung heroes. Working the front lines between picky diners and prima donna chefs, they are the foot soldiers of fine dining. This week Bob will be embedded, embattled and run off his feet at a busy brasserie in New York City. Once he’s trained in the classic French style Bob will compete against the city’s finest in the annual New York City Waiter’s race held, appropriately, on French national holiday Bastille Day. His challenge is to run three blocks and back carrying two wine glasses and a carafe of water on a tippy tray, without spilling a drop. His reward is to prove that he can take the heat, in and out of the kitchen.
