Quandary Resolution 307
cap-a-pie, claptrap, macédoine, martinet
Whenever a new sous chef starts working for him, Raúl plays the martinet: dressed cap-a-pie in starched chef's whites, he welcomes his new employee by demanding to be told the difference between a macédoine de légumes and a Russian salad, and accepts no claptrap for an answer.
