Well, that is if you're lucky. There is certainly a rush of exultation when an amorphous idea becomes a reality and a surge of adrenaline appears to carry you towards the finish line. In cooking many times those moments are where the real work begin. We often craft individual versions of our ideas first and the real test is recreating them so that they can be reproduced in volume by other hands with no discernible loss of quality. It is a constant challenge and one that we enjoy.
Our path this past year has been a surprising one. Had anyone asked us a year ago where we would be now I'm sure that we would have answered "in a restaurant". Clearly that hasn't happened and instead we have wandered an entirely different and novel path. The cooking classes have been amazing for us. We are constantly inspired by the people who come to our sessions. They question us, challenge us, and teach us new things every day. On the one hand we miss having an audience to cook for every day. On the other hand we have the flexibility to explore all of ideas and share them with others in ways that we might not be able to in a restaurant setting. For today this blog is our inspiration. Our readers are a big part of our motivation. We thank you for visiting us today and any other day you wish to join us. We couldn't do it without you.
