Thank You Cape Chef (on Kuan's behalf) Sorry to butt in,
but while perusing that thread you mentioned Barry Wine and Katy Sparks. I knew that name sounded familiar. The first real chef I worked for was a Barry Wine disciple and formally of Quilted Giraffe. He would go on and on about it, but of course that was WAY ahead of my time and I didn't really get it. I sometimes hear references to Barry and QG, can you tell me anything more? The chef I worked for is now in some heavenly resort in Vail, CO and I plan on using him as a reference on my resume, so I'll be contacting him soon and he would get a kick out of any good stories. Thanks! Maybe a different thread?
I agree with Chiff. It's a southern thang. The saloons and food establishments down here used to hire gravediggers to dig the food refuse pits. They dug em 8ft X 6ft.
But ya know the yankees will try to take credit for everything.
Let's see here.....I recall a story about a resturant that had a back door towards
86 st. I think in chicago,getting tossed out ment getting tossed to 86th. Heck there's a lot of stories but I think Willard Espy (RIP) wrote about it in the book
'Thou Inproper, thou Uncommon noun'.
Don't quote me on it as I haven't read in some time.
