I had quite the day last sunday.
As some of you know I recently graduated and am now a line cook.
Then I got news that there is a house waiting for me (rental) in another town so suddenly I needed to move.......working like crazy to get all sorted.
Its a dream of a house *squeeze me* and all I could have wanted.
Then of course needed new job....and quick.
A friend of mine saw an ad on twitter of a restaurant in the city where I am going to live and immediately thought of me.
I replied to the ad and sent email as requested, putting on my brave shoes and going for it.
Next thing I knew was arriving at work next morning and the restaurant calling my chef ......
When he hung up, he told me that I would be contacted for a job interview ....indeed, after few mins got news and we set the date on last sundaymorning.
I went there, totally relaxed and it was totally WEIRD I tell you.
How about when you sit down with coffee and chef just asks you, :OK, do tell.........
Well I sure did tell how I got into all of this just this year (!!) and how things went, moving, then the weird coincidence about the ad and here I am..... what I was looking for, etc. Passion is what counts and all the rest can be learned.... (still new to the trade after all)
We had a very nice hour together and he let me know what feedback my current chef had given *blush* and that he wanted to hire me on the spot but needed to check with his boss.
Since it was his boss who saw my email and told the chef to phone RIGHT NOW that would be ok.
Sunday night at work, message on phone : we want to welcome you in our team.......
HOLY S*IT!!!! Lots of work waiting for me, new place being 2 as big as my old one, 80 a night, will take getting used to.
But lovely menu, classic basics, all homemade, restaurant is one of the best of the city.......**blink**
but....anyone tips on how to handle double guests than you were used to? its a bit overwhelming all that right now......slowly sinking in.
