Last spring, my boss (who rules) asked me if I would be interested in penning blogs for the place I call home from Monday through Friday. I work at Hell’s kitchen. It has nothing to do with the reality show…it is far more interesting a place. My immediate response was, “O MY GOSH I’D LOVE TO!”
The blog went live last week. The first post was made by the wife of the founder of the restaurant and includes a video of peanut butter preparation. If you didn’t know, Hell’s Kitchen is rightfully famous for it’s home made peanut butter. Every morning I get to work and I toast a slice of multi-grain toast and smother it with the PB. Not only does it keep my stomach from growling while I pour coffee and serve eggs to the fine folks of Minneapolis, the stuff is amazing to taste.
So, at the very-last-super-end part of the video, there is a short bit where yours truly eats some peanut butter. I was working a lunch shift one day and he approached me with a hand held video camera.
Boss Man: Let me know when you have an extra five minutes, I need to have you eat some peanut butter.
Me: Ya, sure, OK. (I was unaware this was going to be on the internet at this point.)
*five minutes later and I am sitting at a table in the middle of the lunch rush with a slice of sour dough and a jar of the infamous condiment in front of me*
Boss Man: Ok, I want you to spread the peanut butter on the bread, and then eat it
Me: *nodding my head*
And then, well. Go watch the video. I ate PB sans the J. It’s a thrill. The video is long and is mostly taken up by my pipe smoking boss and the kitchen employee only known as “Shaggy.”
CLICK HERE!!!!! to see the thrilling footage!
And if it is convincing enough, you can actually buy the PB online via the website.
I want to work at a place like this.
I might order some of this PB. Seriously. I’m a big PB fan. I want to see what the big deal is. I don’t want any funky weird flavors though. Just straight up PB. I mean, let’s not get crazy here.
Crap. For some reason my computer’s not letting me download Quicktime so I can’t watch it. I’ll just have to use my imagination I guess. You don’t mind if I embellish, do you? Ok, here we go…
Guy I’ve never seen smoking a pipe…ok, got it…some people walking around…and here you are…aaaaaaaaaand, you’re a zombie. There we are.
Yeah, you really don’t need to see it now.
Wow! I saw teh REEL Kristiane!
All like, alive and stuff!
I really like the nod at the end- “There, I ate the peanut butter, ‘mm good’ , and we’re done, right?”
Yup, that’s pretty much how it felt 😉
I don’t know If I said it already but …Hey good stuff…keep up the good work! 🙂 I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,)
A definite great read..Tony Brown
