mothers day and other disasters
Now as a mother and cook i have learned to take criticism and all in the workplace like a champ and rarely bat an eye. But this week i have gotten blown out of the water by comments and sometimes i have actually visualized strangling my chef as he speaks..
He has given us the task of preparing menu item that he considers WORTHY of his approval.. hmphf!! so this was my first shot out of the gate... It it polenta mixed with a blue cheese and chive cream, then i pan fried it til crispy, it is topped with a piece of steak, and red onions reduced in balsamic, red wine and sugar. It is a gluten free kicked up roast beef sandwich. it wa creamy and delicious... I was very pleased while watching jenny eat it. she had a look of utter enjoyment in her eye and i knew i had hit it.
Then....WHAMMO ...chef, who only heard about the dish but did not see...proceeded to critique it and i was just so...arghh.... will post after a few mimosa's...happy mothers day to me. WOMAN WHO BEHAVE RARELY MAKE HISTORY!!!!! UNGIRDLED WOMEN RULE!!
