Oh lord. I am talking about work on my blog again. It feels like talking about work at a party, something that is supposed to be off limits, but gets itself integrated into every conversation regardless of the unspoken rule. So, here’s my full force unapologetic shop talk:
My boss co-authored a book. It’s a cook book. This fits as I work at a restaurant and my boss is indeed the head honcho-commander in chief chef. (Chief chef, chief chef, chief chef-say that ten times fast).
As I have written before, I have been entrusted with much of the written online work for my business. This is something I am insanely excited about and looking forward to with all my heart. I had a pow-wow with the owner’s wife today and it was determined that we should talk about the new book a LOT. *hits the stores October 1st BTW*
Well, I figured if I was going to push said book, I ought to at least get a peak at it, right? Much better was done for my eyes. I was able to read the entire manuscript, in full.
First off, I don’t need to test out the recipes as I consume them daily in my 9-5. The food is outstanding and original. This is the anti-Betty Crocker cookbook. It has the biography of my boss, the owner and founder of Hell’s Kitchen. His life story includes (ready for a cliche’?) LOTS of sex, drugs, and of course a bit of rock and roll. Beyond the stories of his curious life there are 157 recipes which include every item on Hell’s Kitchen’s violently popular menu (for which folks line up for as much as two hours to devour during weekend brunches.)
Supposing that you are into cooking up grub and appreciate incomparable recipe ideas. Check out the book, buy one, pre-order, etc. Or, buy one for that individual you never know what to get for Christmas.
Congratulations! You are truely shaping into the professional writter you have been wanting to be. I am really happy for that.
Way to go! I’m seriously ordering some of this peanut butter. Maybe I’ll snag a book too. You’ve certainly got your own “voice.” I’m sure it translates into cookbooks just as well.
I hope I am not confusing you. I did not write the cookbook, I am wrting about it only. My boss and a frend of his wrote the book.
Oh, right. Yeah, I knew the boss and his friend wrote the book. I was thinking that you had also contributed parts or something. That’s what I understood anyway.
Forgive me. Sometimes I’m about as perceptive as Helen Keller.
I’m going to order this for my mil’s birthday. Then she can make good stuff for me.
It sounds interesting, and as I am getting into making stuff- cheaper than goin’ out!- I may have to take a looksie!
