If you can't stand the heat, you're not going to enjoy being stuck in the kitchen.
With Britain basking in some of the hottest weather on record, extreme heat has been a fact of life for many chefs these past weeks.
Still, no need to get hot and bothered under the collar, instead tell us just how hot it has been in your workplace by filling out our How hot is your kitchen? survey.
It shouldn't raise a sweat, as it'll take only a few minutes to complete, but what it will do is help us here at Caterer to build up a body of evidence to highlight your plight and campaign for a change in conditions.
