Ok everyone, so it’s the last official day before we officially start serving the general public with their opinions and their impressions and their reviews. Am I nervous? I would say terrified is more appropriate of a feeling. Am I starting out with safe desserts? Crowd pleasers that are tried, tested, and true? Well, no, obviously. That would be too easy. There is risk involved, there is a good chance of failure.
Things not helping my anxiety: the boys are killing it with their dishes and their execution. These are professionals with professional tongues. Every time I taste the food, my ego is like “what the fuck are you doing here?” I have wanted this for a very long time, I have worked very hard to get here. I have the training, the education, the creativity, the work ethic, the vision, yet still, I feel unprepared, and no amount of work will make me feel prepared. After a 6 month build up, and 3 weeks of work til you drop, the focus of a med school student, I still feel like a wet lost dog.
Thanks for listening everyone, see you on the hot side of the counter.
