"Chef, where do they keep the elbow grease?"



New kitchen, new surroundings, new faces. Lo siento mucho, I have been so blog-deficient lately. Even missed the "Poulet Surprise" deadline on Peanut Butter Etouffee, darn it. However, time spent sleeping over-rules the time for blogging. Yes, 4:00 a.m. comes around real quick, no more Conan O'Brien, no more David Letterman for me. The reality is that while most of you are fast asleep in a warm bed, and maybe lucky enough to share it with a warm someone, I am already at work, firing up the ovens, unlocking the walk-ins, starting up that first pot of coffee, proofing the doughs. And I love every moment of it!

As soon as I get into a groove, and things settle down a bit, I will be able to devote proper time to be posting on a regular basis. For now, please keep those good thoughts coming, I need all I can get! Muchas gracias a todos.

Overheard once in the zen kitchen:
"Chef, how long do I cook it?" the student asks.
"Till it's done!" replies the chef.
