Best of luck to you Ironchef! We'll see you when you get settled. I see Hawaii in my mind's eye right now and I'm smiling just thinking of it.

Good luck buddy, i can't believe you are leaving the kitchen but anyone that works in this industry understands the "burned out" aspect of the kitchen. You'll be back, but it is definately good to get a break not to mention learning more, after all that s what it's all about!

sounds good, ironchef. Hope your move doesn't mean we are losing you in this little family. I always get inspired by and get good advice from you.

Thanks again. I've actually worked at this hotel in past as a line cook about 3 years ago. My position is going to be similar to my Chef Tournant position that I have now, in the sense that I will be floating around the various restaurant outlets and I won't be assigned just one particular location. I fly out in a few hours and arrive in Honolulu at around 8:30ish HST.

Good for you and good luck !!
Hawaii was your home when we first met on line here on DC. (If my memory serves me right..LOL ) At that time you worked at a beautiful Hotel.

WHAT?!!! Trading in drive-by shootings, daily freeway police-pursuits and smog for living on a tropical island & a paycheck? What one has to sacrifice for one's career. j/k. Good luck, IC. La-La land will (hopefully) still be here when you get back. Not easy to pull up stakes and relocate. I admire your courage.

Toodles for now.

Well...back home. I'll be staying at my parent's house for awhile until I can find my own place. Rent here is through the roof right now so I'm not going to be in any rush I think.

Right now it's 88 degree, sunny, nice breeze. Here's the view from the deck at my parent's house. Doesn't look like the atypical paradise does it?
