I need a creative outlet. My days are filled with the stresses of managing restaurants, teaching, paying bills and all of the other day to day nonsense that keeps us from artistic and creative expression. I hope this blog can can help my busy mind free itself from the restraints of the day-to-day grind. I want to create a place to talk about food, technique, restaurants, plants and the struggles of the service industry. I want to create something for future and former students to continue their education and professional development. I want to create a space where everyone can speak their mind regardless of age, sex, race, religious beliefs and concentrate on the beauty that is food...for food destroys barriers and ultimately, brings us together.
