new job. over.

So the ones of people who make up my avid readers may have noticed my absence from about April until about now. My last words were about this new job I got as the chef at a new restaurant/cafe in my neighborhood, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 

The Modca Cobb -- one of my favorite menu items!
After working doctor-type hours (10-14 hours a day, 6-7 days a week), the project is over. In mid-July, the owners made a decision to close the kitchen (not at all to do with the food) and that was that. I created a delicious menu of healthy, organic, and locally sourced foods and between that, hiring and training staff, and just trying to create a flow I indeed wore myself out.

It was an exhausting few months, and I'm happy to have had this experience and consider the whole thing an experiment in having a truly full-time job for kind of the first time. And now I'm looking forward to moving on to something new. Maybe something entirely new-- as that just seems to be what I'm up to this year. I wasn't always working in food, you know? It might be nice to see what other of my talents and skills have been laying in wait...
