Glamour. Glory. Fame. Public adoration. Okay, so I lied, the first half of my day today working as a catering chef went like this
stuffed 500 Belgian endive boats with curried chicken salad and sprinkled with crushed smoked almonds
portioned, rolled, floured, egg washed, pankoed, partially deep fried to set, 500 risotto porcini mushroom balls
portioned, rolled, floured, egg washed, pankoed, partially deep fried to set, 500 crab balls
only 3 items, doesn't sound like much, took 5 mind numbing hours without a break and working fairly quickly believe it or not,... yeah glamour, glory, fame, public adoration...
Don't get me wrong, I still love what I do. I am meant to be a chef. Just wanted to give a glimpse into the reality of the profession.
