Wow, thanks for all the good wishes....I seem to have caught a few lucky ones.
I interviewed on Wed. started on Thurs. , truthfully I know I just got lucky. Their pastry chef left last sat. and I had just mailed my resume. I think they took the first person that came their way. It's weird but I never even had an interview at either place. Both just told me about them and asked if I wanted the jobs. Not one personal question asked (all my worry over nothing). Geez, maybe I did alright on my resume....?
Your right Chrose, you probably won't hear much from me this season. They have about 4 times the business my last place did. I love my new Chef, I hope I still think that 10 years from now! I'm very excited (he knows how to bake too). But there's alot that's different so I have a learning curve handicap....but I'll study and do my best.
Pongi I hope you'll help me along the way. The club does a (all you can eat, cheap) Italian night every week. I have about a dozen good Italian desserts and then I RUN OUT. Time to invest in some baking books or a good translation book so I can rename my American desserts in Italian (think that will work). Can you reccomend any that include desserts or good web sites with Italian desserts you like? Americans won't let me put of cheese or plain fruit for dessert....so I'll be looking for help, please?
So thanks everyone, your good wishes really worked :D
