It’s been a year since I finished Culinary School. It seems so long ago- I guess years in the kitchen is like years in Hollywood. In my case without the Walk of Fame…
My first gig as a chef was a wedding in a penthouse overlooking the Hudson River. As the bride and the groom tied the knot at sunset, I was sweating my @$#& off in the kitchen, nervous as hell, but determined to execute the dinner with the best of my ability. In the end it paid off and we got raving feedback. What a feeling!
The next big event was an annual Gala for 190 people. A daunting task, but the challenge was the adrenaline that kept me going. Of course, having the super special talented crew to help deliver the job made it all possible. Without them I wouldn’t know where to start. Probably with the Prosecco… Two days of crazy hard work, the Gala was a success and the Prosecco tasted better than ever and I felt grand!
