The first step to cooking is finding the right ingredients.
And the chef pee in your kitchen?
It’s no joke.
I have heard it described as a nasty, disgusting, and often painful, odor.
“I’m afraid to eat anything that smells like that,” says David Pee, a chef in the Chicago area.
Pee is one of about 200 chefs nationwide who have made a living by adding the poo to their recipes.
He says the odor is sometimes so bad he has to wear a mask, because he has been unable to work in the kitchen for more than two months due to the odors.
“If you can cook in a hot, stifling environment, that can make it worse,” Pee says.
One of the most common reasons why chefs do this is because the smell is so strong that people can’t cook at all, even when they are cooking properly.
For instance, if you’re trying to make a pizza, Pee suggests making it a few minutes before you leave the restaurant to eliminate the smell.
“I’d recommend the best thing is to go to the kitchen, and have some coffee or something warm, so that the chef can cook the pizza and then come back and clean it,” P.J. Pizzaro, the owner of Pizzeria Luigi and owner of the Michelin-starred New York restaurant The Pizzardino, says.
“You can cook it the same way you’d cook it a normal day.
But then the smell gets worse.
So, when you’re done cooking, you clean it up and put it away.”
Pee admits to being worried about how the odor will affect his customers, but he’s confident his customers will find the smell tolerable.
“It’s kind of an unfortunate thing because there are chefs who love it, and chefs who hate it,” he says.
But Pee adds, “There’s a reason why it’s a dirty thing.”
According to Pee and other chefs, the odor may be a natural phenomenon caused by bacteria living in your gut, which can take on an odor after eating, washing, or drinking.
Other ingredients in your food that may also trigger the odor include raw vegetables and fruits, nuts, and meats.
“When it comes to cooking, it’s the same bacteria that is causing it,” says chef Jen Pee.
“But if you have a good filter, you can get rid of it.
You can just use a soap and water, and that will just wash it away.”
PEE has found that the best way to clean up after the poops is to get some fresh water. “
You can actually take a bath in it.”

He also says a little soap and a paper towel are good ways to get rid off the smell, especially if you do it the night before.
So Pee has found a way to keep the poos from making a big mess in his kitchen: a special filter.
P.E.A.S.T. is a company he co-founded to make filter cartridges that clean up the pooing.
The cartridge has a unique, non-toxic design that doesn’t irritate your skin, but does trap the bacteria.
PEE says the cartridge has been successful in keeping his kitchen clean.
“When we had the filter on, the first thing we did was wipe the floor with paper towels and then wash it down with the same kind of paper towels,” PEE explains.
“We did that for a month, and it just stopped all the smells coming out.
And we were actually able to get the bacteria out.
We’re really happy with the way it worked.”
