In this video from Christian Remde, Paul Qui and Kaz Edwards discuss staff meal at Uchi Houston. Unlike other restaurants that try to feed their employees as cheaply as possible, Uchi uses it as an opportunity for chefs to try new ideas and show off for their peers. Whether they're preparing a Thanksgiving dinner style meal or a fish preparation that might show up on the restaurant's menu, staff meal at Uchi always has to taste great. As Qui says in the video, "Staff meal is the opportunity to cook for your chefs and your peers. For me, that's a bigger honor in a way."
