This is one reason I refuse to go out for public thanks. I've had feasts
that were pretty bad but we had to go and applaud the cooks. Now,
I fully understand how hard it is to cook a feast, I've done one or
two in my time, but I also don't feel I should applaud a mediocre
effort. Also, I feel that if people don't like what I've cooked them I
don't want them to feel they have to applaud me and my crew. If
they did like it, they'll let us know in their own way.
I do try to let my crew know I appreciate them and they know they
have done a good job. But I honestly hate being paraded out for

I agree with this. If something is wrong during the feast or even
if a problem was found afterwards, I'd like to know.
> But don't snub my crew!<
I appreciate your protection and value of your people, and I agree that
kitchen crews are totally amazing.  But I feel a visit from the local 
B&B or Royals back to the kitchen is more impressive than being part
of the show.
