In loving memory of Anthony Bourdain
Yes indeed dear restaurant folk I know what you’re thinking. About time you paid a tribute. Rest in peace chef. You are truly loved and truly missed.
If the Mario’s crew ever got hold of some of these rubes they’d have the fillings out of their teeth. So said the late great Anthony Bourdain in Kitchen Confidential of the kids he was at the Culinary Institute of America with.
Chef Bex thought of these words and smiled a knowing smile.”They’ll get there she thought.” Chef Bex. She put a kind hand on a trembling shoulder. She said take a deep breath. She said, “the more you do it the easier it gets,” morning, noon and night. She meant it.
Well office Bex is one of these rubes. Office Bex finished her new job training today. Office Bex starts her new job properly tomorrow. Office Bex is a little scared.
Of course they won’t have the fillings out of her teeth. I mean for a start she hasn’t got any.
Joking of course. It just isn’t that kind of place. Everyone is super nice. Everyone is supportive. A big day will always be a big day. A first day might be the biggest of all.
But with the right hand on a trembling shoulder.
You’ll get there.
After all. The more you do it the easier it gets.
