Biography
I am a seasonal fruit-inspired pastry chef. My desserts are about the inherent flavors of ingredients, subtlety, and focus on seasonality. I have a voracious interest of historical gastronomy and a love of Southern Cookery. I am completely on-the-job/ self taught. Given the opportunity, I steer people away from writing big checks to enter this industry. {I have written a number of articles on the subject and answer questions from people all over the world who are wondering if they should go to culinary school.}

When Payroll is Bouncing or Your Employer isn't Paying You

Posted on November 2, 2008 at 6:27pm 3 Comments

Everyone is having a hard time right now. Even if they don't know it. Everyone is getting smacked financially. Even if their Master hasn't demanded they drop their pants just yet, it's coming.



A spanking fest is coming to a restaurant near you.



Now it's time to weed out the doe eyed culinary graduates from the serious, stamina-strong line cooks. The hope is that fewer restaurants mean fewer shoemakers. Or, shoemakers will be all that's left when the good…

chef pick-up lines.

we don't get out much, but when we do, watch out. fuego!

am looking for suggestions on how chefs can pick up those in the greater public.

sure i could date a waiter or a host, but i don't want to look like i believe my own hype. it's so 5 minutes ago. it's been done. and done. I am not a Food Network star. but i want to look beyond the doors of a restaurant.

"Need your knife sharpened, baby?"

In the Hot Hot Kitchen.

Img_6811 Do you know what makes most kitchens really hot?



Freezers. And walk in refrigerators. And lowboys. And reach ins. Ice machines.

You wouldn't think. But it's so.



Kitchens can get really hot.…

Chef to Cook Advice

Posted on June 20, 2008 at 2:11pm 3 Comments

I had an important talk with a cook the other day. What struck me the most was that she has probably never heard what I had to say from anyone else.



For the last few years I have been writing about my industry here at Eggbeater. In some ways I have made guesses based on previous experience, current experiences and what other cooks and chefs have told me the last few years. But it was not until I began…

Group Dynamics In Kitchens

Posted on June 6, 2008 at 12:01am 3 Comments

I am having a hard time. A lot of people I know are having a similarly hard time and so maybe it's time to be having a hard time. I am trying to see and understand where I fit and don't appear to fit in my job, the kitchen, among cooks, with chefs, in the industry as a whole, and all the invisible crevices in which ickinesses take up residence if we're not careful.



I attempt to be as honest with my weaknesses as I can, without creating a ladder from which to climb over the bridge on.… Continue

Hi Shuna...
I hope you will add more posts as you come from a distinctive perspective not usually voiced by hourly BOH. I liked your articulate style and dancing imagination in your video. I have family in the Bay Area. Maybe I'll track down the Mealticket... what an interesting name!

Hi Shuna. Thanks for dropping me a line. The Urban Tavern will open in August. The exact date hasn't hit yet, but we're all getting excited about it. Are you working for particular restaurants in the Bay Area?

Kept drinking a lot of wine. My mother used to say that wine conserve les cornichons :0)
How are you doing?

Rebecca,

This is a distinct possibility but I need to get back to you when I know about Sunday... And P.s. I went to MT today for a quick lunch with a friend and it was mighty tasty indeed!

Yes, it's portable, and brand new. Are you free this Sunday? I'd love to take you to eat at the Mealticket as part of your compensation.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
