He did have a similar hair style though. And yes. 'T' understood food at so many amazing levels. I've been working on some weight loss myself. Slow is the way to go.

He certainly didn't understand raspberry cake filling.

Heh, I remember that well. He didn't deserve that.

Yeah, I've told that story to numerous people over the years, kind of as a "what happens when you decide to quit the tech industry" anecdote.

I must have missed the raspberry cake filling thing.

The short version of the story is that he was working as a pastry chef and got fired over an argument with his boss about raspberry cake filling. There was probably a lot of other stuff leading up to that, but he told the story in that way.

The way it was told to me, he was working at New World Home Cooking (Woodstock area), and that particular day was a catering job, probably for a wedding.

Boss tells him to put a raspberry filling (or glaze?) on the cake.
His immediate response is, "what kind of filling", because he can think of several off the top of his head.
Boss's immediate response is, "you're fired."

Sounds a little extreme.

Agreed. Like I said, there was probably a whole lot more that happened between the two of them before that particular exchange.
