    25 women harassed. Some found out they ate more than food from him.

    Crazy! I have eaten at August, have one of his books, and bought into his image as a nice dude.

    Can you share a good story or two from working with the guy?

    I worked with him at Artesia restaurant in Abita Springs. One Saturday evening, we closed and broke down the kitchen. Although service was closed, there were front of house staff present with the few lingering customers in the dining room. The next morning we opened for Sunday brunch. The sous chef arrived first and I arrived second. I washed my hands and got to my station and began to prep. I never left the kitchen. Besh arrived thirdly, walked in and went to the bathroom. He came back and asked, "Who didn't flush the toilet?"...a legitimate question. I told him, "not me." He asked again, "Which one of you 2 didn't flush the toilet"?

    I said, not me". So he waited until all staff was there and called every one of them into the kitchen for a meeting. He made both of us come to the front. He then paced back and forth wagging his finger in the air and said, "one of these 2 guys didn't flush the toilet this morning. I asked them both twice and they both denied it twice. Therefore one of them is lying and I think it's him." Pointing at me.

    I put down my knife and got in his face and said, "You know what I think? I think if it was me I would have been man enough to tell you...you Mother Fucker." He was stunned and I was watching his right hand. If it had flinched, I would have taken him down (I was a state champion wrestler) tied him up and hurt him. I'm quick.

    He didn't move. So I began pacing like him, wagging my finger in the air and said, "just to clarify my thinking, why was it one of us? Last night after we left all kinds of people were there." He started pacing and wagging and said "Aah good question. Because the croit had corn in it and we ate corn last night at the family meal and that was too soon for the corn to be deposited in solid form." I ímmediately answered, "You really know your shit."
