Okay, sounds like you have a few things lined up there

You dont like the idea of working in a restaurant kitchen?

The first one was back in the 80"s with my first wife. We moved to live with her parents in Italy. We leased the downstairs of the hotel they owned and managed the bar and restaurant. For the first while I couldn't speak Italian well enough so I worked in the kitchen. As I became more fluent I moved out and became the barrista for the most part, but ended up doing everything, for about 2 1/2 years.
The second one was here in rural Canada, it was a family style restaurant with local/regional cuisine. 13 years. Pizza, burgers, breakfasts, sandwiches, deep fryer stuff..I initially tried to offer Italian and other European style meals but the market demanded meat and taters......so, when in Canada....

That all sounds great and also that you now probably speak fluent Italian, good stuff!

It is a pity that the family styl restaurant didn't take to the other cuisines, I know I would have loved them

I can totally understand you wanting a change, maybe a rockstar

I do wish you the best of luck though in any venture

kylie, your meals always have special eye appeal, with veggies so beautifully vibrant and fresh. i don't know how you manage, day after day, in the middle of a lengthy, energy-sapping heat wave, continuing to deliver such lovely dishes.

and i agree with roch, msm's buns are a truly magnificent sight!

Thank you so much V, that is so lovely of you to say

Steve wanted me to let you know that he was cooking it with me

It does help with air conditioning but yes, takes a toll on you during the heatwaves

Looks delicious, Kylie!

Tonight we're having NY strip steak, spinach salad, and chili-lime sweet potatoes.
