I never thought I would start another blog. I mean, why would I? My food blog Anticiplate, keeps me busy writing about my life, creating and trying new recipes, and an occasional sentence on ballet. But, I have exciting news planned for this summer which warrants even more of this thing I call a "blogging time suck": I am actually going to work in a professional restaurant kitchen, and learn the tricks of the trade of being a restaurant cook.
Yes. I told you I would do it.
I mean, how else am I supposed to figure out if I want to open a restaurant in the future? Or cater private dinner parties? Or teach cooking classes?
On my to do list:
1. Buy a chefs coat, a knife bag, and maybe even some orange Crocs like Mario Batali wears.
2. Get my food handler's license. Yuck.
3. Get my knives sharpened (and maybe buy a new one, don't tell Erik)
And, I was kidding about the orange Crocs. I promise you. I will NEVER do this.
Don't judge. But, I might get black.
I am excited for you to go on this journey with me. I will be posting daily, and to be honest, I am scared shitless. I know this is going to push me past my comfort zone, and hopefully teach me more than I ever knew about a whole new art form. One in which I am so eager to discover, yet will be sure to have my heart broken by at some time or another.
