    Hey what's up

    I'm Nick

                I've been through some years at random service jobs and I'm half way through culinary school and I've just been given my first chance in a restaurant.

         The Sous and team seems to think that I'm going to run away from the place and get a desk job . wtf? Rookie routine?

         The exec. also said that 50 out of 40 So/Cal white guys don't last in this business but I'm going to prove him wrong.

    You'll be fine just don't go and start telling them that salt keeps meat moist. 

    The best thing to do is to keep your head down, work hard, and don't talk too much. Keep a notebook of recipes, plate ups, flavor combinations, etc. 

    What do they have you doing? Prep? Cold station?

    Good luck.

    Youre a funny guy.

    The job's dish and prep.

    It's gonna be something else.

    Thanks for the advise (for sure).
