Thanks for your good wishes. These are certainly scary times.
I expect to experience many of those"thats not how we do it, burps"
I am hopeing logic will be the deciding factor, and if not hey my nickname is Angel, and I will grin and take it. I have this saying I apply to moments like those, it goes like this "in terms of a lifetime, it means little" Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a dope, just able to put the ego on the side when things simply are a battle of wills.
I spend every waking moment preparing for this transition, reading and studying the culinary world. Its a wonderful challenge to learn a second career.
A friend of mine gave me a book to read in hopes of scareing me out of this, but I have to admit, I loved the book and it did just the opposite.
Has anyone read Kitchen Confidential. I am sure you all have. Wonderfully candid account of this lifestyle. I appreciated the directness, and I love the passion that this man feels for the occupation. Passion is good.
Please keep in touch, it means alot.
