Salt and pepper caramels. Slightly salty caramel with the smooth sting of freshly ground black pepper. I envisioned a perfectly golden square with a landscape of salt and pepper, a very happy ending. Thanks to my good friend Angie for the great photo above, check out her site: Ang Snaps
What better than to have an edible perfume? Tweaking and testing an old pre-dessert with an aromatic twist. Basil, lemon and rosemary with a passion fruit daiquiri perfume. Passion fruit aroma, water and white rum. The final touch sprayed table side.
Determination. The fuel that drives the driven to their goals and dreams. It is the difference between the weak and the strong. A cook works day in and day out, not for a hefty paycheck or their name on the sign, but for the satisfaction of doing their craft. Everyday is a lesson learned and lesson appreciated.
While most cooks are proud to work with their chef, I am even more proud to work next to mine. To be involved with someones future, talent and determination is the greatest feeling achieved day in and day out.
This is an amazing industry with amazing talents and I am very lucky to be apart of it all.
