Work in a restaurant, love working in a restaurant. We only have three chefs on most nights, and the two of us on the fryer/grill line really, really have to work together. I want my co-workers to respect the work I do, and I want the customers to get what they pay for and enjoy the food.
I haven't been doing this for long, and I have a lot to learn, especially when working lunch, because it's mostly just me cooking and one other person doing prep. Before I went to bed last night I was thinking about how I would go about cooking different dishes in the most efficient way. Like, if I get two dishes that need to be out at the same time, I have to really prioritize and find out what takes a long time and what I can do while something else is resting or just sitting in the oven. I actually got one of the tickets I prepared for today, and I wrecked that shit.
I really love my job, even if it's a pain in the ass to work 3 doubles straight. I think it helps that my boss is not only my best friends father, but he's one of the best chefs in the state, if not country.
I wrote a four word letter.
