The Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is a massive hotel. 43 kitchens, 450 chefs, serving tens of thousands of meals a day. Chef Christie, who oversees the food operations, has a lot of individual processes, materials, and people to consider. There are a mind-boggling number of things happening at any time, including ordering, receiving ingredents, storage, prep, and serving.
So, with all that to oversee, what is the first thing he looks for to see whether things are running smoothly? How clean the kitchens are.
"I'm looking at general cleanliness, first thing. I'm looking at the floors...if it's total chaos or if things are really under control."
A good reminder that following the Shine step in 5S is both style and substance.
