THE MESSY GOURMET
A DMK Production

Your thirteen year old son, Bobby, is passionate about cooking and has been since he was very young.  Bobby is quite good at cooking and has entered and won several kid cooking competitions.  He aspires to attend culinary school and hopes to have his own restaurant one day.  He was so excited when you got him his very own chef's coat for Christmas.

Despite Bobby's wonderful gourmet quality offerings he has a major issue.  Bobby is messy and leaves the kitchen a wreck and in chaos after he prepares a meal.  You have tried to work with him on this and have even showed him famous chefs on line and on television who all stress keeping the kitchen clean.  Bobby is of the opinion that if he cooks then someone else should clean.

Today, Bobby prepared a wonderful dinner for the family but left the kitchen an utter disaster.  You reminded Bobby about cleanliness but he refuses to clean up or even help clean up.

What happens?

If he has learned this attitude from the adults in the house, then perhaps he has a point. If the family rule is that everyone cleans up after himself, then I need to enforce that. It's pretty simple: you won't cook in the kitchen until you take responsibility for your messes. On the other hand, perhaps we could agree that everyone pitch in and help a bit in the kitchen, sharing both the cooking and cleaning responsibilities.

He's going to run up against a major problem as and when he starts culinary school a they will definitely insist he clears up after him.

Unless things improve Bobby will find himself presented with the table d'hote menu:

Buns on toast

Roast rump with ginger pickle

Slippery sorbet (which from his viewpoint could equate to "I scream" as it will be a large portion served with a wooden spoon   Smile )

To an extent I sympathise. I don't think Bobby should be washing the dishes if he cooked the meal. However, he could try filling a washing up bowl and putting utensils in as he finishes with them and busking the surfaces while he waits for something to cook. Otherwise Bobby will be putting in more time clearing up after the meal which I'm sure he doesn't want. And don't you hide the wooden spoon young man

It appears that Bobby has been less than diplomatic when pointing out that the TV chefs who bang on about clean kitchens don't do the cleaning themselves.

The pressure on a single chef (never mind an inexperienced boy) singlehandedly producing a multi-course gourmet meal is such that there is no time for clear up as you go without compromising the quality of the final product.

Bobby's cooking is a big time and labour saving service for his parents anyway; a service they don't deserve if all they can do is complain about the mess, themselves being too lazy and ungrateful to get off their backsides and help with the clearing up afterwards.

So!  After that little rant what to do about it?

Thank him and then - VOLUNTEER

My alternative solution will be to enrol him at Eton where he should find a natural home for his mess.

I've been the one on many occasions who had to clean up others' messes in the kitchen. No matter how good the meal, I don't feel grateful when I confront a kitchen in which every pot, pan, cooking utensil and dish is dirty; and where hardened splashes cover every surface.

I think that between leaving the kitchen spotless and leaving it looking like a disaster area there is a middle ground, in which the cook/chef mops up spills, makes a conscious effort to use as few utensils as possible, stacks soiled crockery in an appropriate place or puts it in the dishwasher, and so on.

I really think the parents should pitch in and help, but I also think Bobby needs to show some consideration as well. After all, cooking is something HE enjoys. He'll miss not being allowed to use the kitchen more than the parents will miss gourmet meals served up with massive ego and entitlement.

I think Kat's hit the real issue on the head. The scenario does not say that Bobby cooks and meal and leaves dishes. It says that he 'is messy and leaves the kitchen a wreck and in chaos'. I agree that if he cooks, someone else should clear the table and do the dishes, but if he leaves a huge mess in the kitchen, then he should clean up after himself. (I manage to cook without leaving a huge mess by wiping up and putting things away as I go - if Bobby can't do that, I'd prefer to cook myself anyway).

As for now, it sounds like this has been an ongoing issue, and Bobby is responding with direct disobedience. I'm going to bare his bottom, give him a long spanking, and then inform him that, when the kitchen is clean, we're going to his room to finish up with the hairbrush - how much he gets depends on my mood. Then I'll give him the choice of standing in the corner while I clean or helping.

Picking up on these RL comments I must observe that there are times when my wife is flying round the kitchen preparing for guests, or perhaps cooking up a gourmet meal for two.

On these occasions she rejects my offers of culinary help (it disrup)ts her timings) but is appreciative when I wander into the kitchen from time to time and clear up any debris lying around.

Perhaps I should modify my advice to this idle whinging parent.

VOLUNTEER AT AN APPROPRIATE TIME.

I think this must be one of those times when personal experience has a HUGE influence on how people view a scenario. Honestly, it seems to me that we're reading two different scenarios, but I would guess that's the personal experience helping each of us focus in on different areas.
