    yesterday after my 2nd interview and a panel interview with the Executive Chef the Sous chef and management team
    I was offered a job as Prep Cook
    at one of the hottest new restaurants opening at the end of this month
    in Fort lauderdal

    It's owner by one of the best restrouant Groups i know of
    Buckhead Life Restourant group has some of the best steak and seafood houses in atlatna and south florida

    this one is Lobster Bar Sea Grille is the name
    it's brand new
    and they are giving me a chance
    wow
    usually you won't get a job like this when you are in school and have no fine dining kitchen experience but the Chef felt like giving me a shot to move up the ladder starting me at a place in the kitchen that would be best for me to learn as much as possible

    specially when the add said 3 years experience in a fine dining kitchen i sent a email in and said i only have exp in
    school but would you be open to giving me a chance
    he called me like 30 minutes latter i had my first interview 2 weeks ago last Thursday and my last one yesterday
    im betting that i had beat out atleast 100 people if not more that applied for this position
    SWEET! Sounds like you got one heck of a jump on things TP! Great job!!

    What a wonderful opportunity for you to grow along with a growing company.

    If they are growing and opening new places he probably has horror stories about how hard it is to find good people who are trainable and not already poorly trained by others.

    He probably likes the idea of finding someone who has the basic skills, from a great school, and teach them the way he wants. What a great compliment to you, that he offered you the job.

    To those who don't know what mis en place means
    It's a French culinary term for everything in its place

    Awesome Congrat's

    My cousin owns a catering business that I have desserts, cookies and ect that I make from scratch that are on his Catering Menu that he subcontracts to me because I wont give out the recipes for them because the side money I make for just an hour of baking pays me real good for doing something I like to do just for the hell of it.

    Then I bake stuff and take them into business meetings for new clients with other companies to butter them up and my cousin has actually catered for people and events where people have come up to him questioning where he got them instantly recognizing my recipes for what ever I made from my meetings telling him I have ate this before made by so & so at so & so company lol
