At one of my favourite restaurants, there is a three-stool bar tucked into a corner that has a complete view of the kitchen. I love to sit there late afternoon and drink tea and watch all the kitchen crew go about their business of getting ready for the busy night ahead. There is a quiet but swift fluidity in their movements, an air of anticipation, a love of preparing good food, and an almost religious observance for detail... very much what you said about your traffic cop, but accompanied by good music!
