French restaurant. When i started cooking, there was no better place to learn, it was one of the top restaurants in town with classically trained chef who taught me "the way" all food stems from French technique. Once you know the techniques and learn all the right habits (no shortcuts) you are on your way to creating your own style and being great. I love this type of cooking, yet I don't really eat at French restaurants, just cook there I have a lot of friends in the area cook at nice places, so I get spoiled going to nice restaurants and eating their food. For the people who love to cook, but have never done it in a restaurant, just let me tell you, it's not what you think. Sure it's fun, but also hellacious and VERY stressful. It is not easy. You either love it or hate it. It's definately not for the meek.

*raises his hand.

I'm a cook at a country club. We're closed this month, so I get to stay home and play with new/different recipes in the kitchen.

I'm a Chef Tournant at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles. My last day there is at the end of this month. I'm moving back to Hawaii.
