Well, though it may have seemed like it, I have not fallen off the face of the planet.

My post school new job/move turned into a rather hectic situation rather quickly and left me without internet and time for a bit.

I have changed positions at the hotel and have managed somehow to obtain a promotion at my job. Im now sitting in the chair of the Food and Beverage Purchaser for the hotel. I’ve been interested in getting to learn more of the business side of the hotel since I arrived, and though I am still fondly head over heals in love with cooking, I am finding that I enjoy this position as well.

unfortunately in my absence from the internet I have missed some amazing and saddening events.

Chef Mike Pardus, of CIA fame, has taken some of the student body and more on a culinary tour of India!! … frankly I’m pissed I graduated when I did, I would have been all over this trip!

Michael Ruhlman’s father has passed away. My deepest heartfelt condolences to him and his family in their time of grief.

Trent Hendricks, owner/operator of Hendricks Farm in PA has returned to work after suffering a nasty health crisis. Here’s wishing you a speedy recovery Trent.

I have apologize to to Cha Xiu Bao, seems I’ve had this wonderful website mis-spelled in my links section for who knows how long…. though Boa Dumplings do sound…. interesting.

Well, There is a lot I could report on, but at the moment I’m buried in a lot of paperwork from the new position. I will be posting another update soon.

Till then..

Happy Eating!
