No Stoves, No Ovens, All Live Fire: A Day With the Sous Chef at Osito | On The Line | Bon Appétit

“It’s 8:00 AM and as exec sous, the first thing I do to start the day is to build a fire so we can get cooking.” Sarah Baldwin, Executive Sous Chef at Osito in San Francisco, take us behind the scenes for an entire day of working the fires and serving plates at a restaurant with no stoves and no ovens—just old fashioned open flames.

  1. A Muscovy/Peking duck hybrid. That's going to be one big delicious bird. Muscovy ducks are huge.

  2. I hope this bring more appreciation to BBQ restaurants across the country that also cook with live fire

  3. I love how the reality of how virtually all humankind cooked for thousands of years up until really only the last couple of centuries is now the new hotness in restaurants.

  4. lots of meat left on those duck-carcasses. (she says, never having butchered a duck in her life)

  5. I feel nothing anymore… Probably shouldn't explore that statement any deeper

  6. I really like the new content BA is putting out. I had stopped keeping up with their videos but these Sous Chef videos are great!

  7. Absolutely love the single long table style seating ????✨ Even as a vegan I can appreciate what they are doing and the way everything is utilized, the smoked mushroom trimmings, all aspects of the animals and even the mandarin peels. Love seeing traditional wood fire cooking. Traditional methods are too often being lost to history, props on them for the preservation of a beautiful art. ????
