Cool Scene In Kitchen Confidential

I have been watching this show based on Anthony Bourdain. It is not the greatest show in the world, but it is entertaining enough to keep me watching for now. They had a great scene last episode though that made me think of all my friends on DC.

They were talking about how chefs hate to cook for people who do not appreciate their food. They then showed someone who asked for the sauce on the side, someone else who asked to substitute one ingredient for another, someone else who asked that their dish be made without butter. They then said how chefs will kill themselves to go out of their way to please a customer who truly appreciated and loves food. You then saw customer after customer taking a bite of food and their eyes close as they savor the flavor and you can tell they are being transported someplace that only a great taste in your mouth can bring you. You could see on their faces that nothing else was going on at that moment. they did not hear all the noises and distractions in the restaurant. All that was going on was this incredible taste in their mouth.

As I watched that second group of people I thought of all of you. It was hard to not imagine those people loving their food as my friends here at DC

You know, our cousins in MA keep asking us to come out there (they're in Swansea).

Then you really need to visit them and get in touch with me when you do! Swansea is probably about an hour from me and since I drive that for for work (both ways) then it would be an easy ride for me to meet up with you

I hesitate to mention names as she is quite well-known. But I will tell you this much - Nicole Kidman.

Hey, it's my fantasy...
