Chef praised for his act of kindness
    2019-05-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AN award-winning British chef has been praised on social media for hiring a homeless man after meeting him outside his restaurant.

Gary Usher, who trained at Michelin-starred Chez Bruce in London, offered the man a job as a kitchen porter at his Manchester bistro, Kala, on Sunday.

Taking to Twitter to share his heartwarming tale, the 37-year-old had received more than 32,000 likes by Monday morning and was dubbed a “life changer.”

He said he was “made up” following the meeting and that the man — known only as Derick — was set to start work yesterday.

Usher explained on Twitter, “Leaving Kala last night about midnight in my chef jacket and got talking to a homeless guy.

“He asked me for cash and I didn’t have any and there wasn’t a cash point anywhere. As I walked off he shouted, “Mate got any jobs?”

“I walked backed to him and said ‘Right I do.’ He said he’d do anything. I replied, ‘Mate, you don’t need to do anything, I have a kitchen porter position available and you could do some food prep too.’”

The chef said the pair of them were “made up” following the exchange and met the day after to discuss the start date.

Social media users were quick to praise the chef.

“You seem a genuinely helpful person who’s aware of the importance of giving people a chance, you might well have changed his life forever! Great stuff,” one said. (SD-Agencies)
