Lionel Mann, the long-time chef to Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, says the primary focus of concern in the kitchen now rests with outside suppliers.
"All commodities are checked in thoroughly for weight and quality and quantity," Mann said.
"And while we're doing that, obviously we're aware if anyone puts a hand-grenade in the pineapples."
The chefs dropped some other tasty morsels as well.

Clearly the most intriguing tale, if ever it could be told, would come from Mann, Queen Elizabeth's chef who is retiring this month after 42 years of service in the royal household.
But Mann, a model of discretion, would only speak generally of the fare consumed by the royals in Buckingham Palace and elsewhere.
"I'd describe the cuisine during my time there as classical French and traditional English," he said, adding that the royal menu has not changed significantly since he began as a junior cook.

The Queen judged the two finalists, with the winner being cooked by Head Chef Lionel Mann. Cold chicken was combined with a tangy crème fraîche, ginger and lime. This recipe was included in the 28,000 hampers given away at the Buckingham palace concerts.

"Ventilation was one of the big bugbears over the last seven or eight years, but because of the large height of the kitchen, nothing could be done," says royal chef Lionel Mann, who has worked in the royal kitchens for 41 years, having originally served an apprenticeship in the kitchens of Vauxhall Motors in Luton, Bedfordshire.
...
With this experience behind them, Mann, his chefs and the rest of the palace team had a clear idea of what they wanted to achieve at Buckingham Palace, which was last fully renovated in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
...
For about 18 months while the new kitchen was being built and installed, Mann and his team worked from a temporary kitchen created within the palace.
...
"You can't use too high a pot on the modern stoves because of the fire suppression system," says Mann.
Ambach ranges have been incorporated into the island suites, some with solid tops and some with gas burners. Mann especially likes the design of the solid tops, which are rectangular with a gully around them where any spills drain, to be collected in a drawer underneath.
...
Mann heads a brigade of 20 chefs who work in all the royal palaces, following the Queen around the country. On his chef's jacket are several medal ribbons - two are Victorian Order medals, one is a Silver Jubilee medal and a fourth is his long-service medal.
There is a great deal of stainless-steel countering, made by Spectrum, for prep, and many of the island counters have power points to avoid trailing cables.
All the Rational combination ovens in the kitchen (three in total) have their own Brita water-filter system. "We used to have to descale the ovens," explains Mann. "Combi-ovens have taken over a lot of the work steamers used to do," he says, adding that he still likes to use the Electrolux high-pressure steamer for vegetables and steamed puddings.
A group of Frymaster fryers has a Filter Magic II filter alongside them. Mann says his previous fryers had an automatic filtration system but that it didn't work terribly well.

The chefs were due to jet off to Cambodia's famed temples of Angkor Wat for a bit of sightseeing, and then take a breather on Thailand's resort islands before returning home.
Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the daughter of Thailand's revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej, will preside over a dinner for the chefs Monday at which she will prepare "som tam", Thailand's traditional papaya salad.
