Hello, New York. Straight from the catamaran and into the kitchen.
Saturday was my second night working at my friends' new restaurant in New York.
The first night I was a hostess, but the second night I worked as a food runner. I've been told that I will be trained as a "roundsman," or someone who can work at any station. I like the sound of that, since it means I will always be in the most needed/helpful role.
Meanwhile, I'm setting up house in a friend-of-a-friend's place in Williamsburg. Still cooking, today I used bread scraps from the restaurant to make my favorite date and cardamom bread pudding.
