I have also become rather obsessed with the tv show, “Top Chef.” I am in the midst of watching beginning seasons. These chefs go all in. They work their tails off to create great food. I always cringe when they announce that the episode will have “Restaurant Wars” in it. This episode happens every season and tends to go poorly. There are two teams and they have to set up a restaurant of their own making for one night. This challenges everything they know about working together. This is a competition but they really must work together to make it work.
It usually doesn’t work. Someone gets egocentric. Someone takes over. Someone only cares about their dish and they all go down. If the team works as a team they are guaranteed to win the war.
