Glad we didn't know beforehand...

Guests just left after staying a week. What didn't we know until they told us at check-out? They own a restaurant. DH feels pressure when he knows someone is a 'real cook' and is in the biz!

They probably didn't tell you beforehand for that very reason. I'm sure they loved every second of their stay.

My son the chef never criticizes another chef's cooking, just says it is a differnt way of fixing it. However, he was in St Louis recently for  his son's hockey team in a tournament and actually posted on FB that it was the worst food he had ever had and next time HE get to pick where the team eats. It MUST have been bad food for him to do that.

You're not allowed to use the term "fixing" or "fixin".   That is the state verb of Texas.wink

We try to avoid using any form of the word/verb fix in male company.

I can relate to that! Better not to know until they're gone. Most chefs are happy with just having someone else cook the food for them. I'm sure they left happy and full!

We were talking food when they were leaving. He said, 'I'm getting hungry again!' Long day for them today. They'll arrive home tomorrow at 6 AM with no downtime.
