kitchen shiftPosted: September 8, 2012
this past month has been so nuts (moving to Philly, chef-ing, teaching, celebrating the last moments of summer), but to get myself back into the blogging rhythm, here are a few shots from the kitchen last night at NGI.
working the appetizer line at my second friday night dinner, with Ann Marie (on the right). she had the task of plating the stir-fried bok choy, and i topped it with spiced peanuts. my job was to keep the peanuts from wandering all over the plate. and to make it even more of a challenge, i tried keeping them in a neat little row, intersecting the bok choy right down the middle. i think that was just my little secret, though – by the time it reached the guests’ forks, it probably looked rather freeform. but still a fun way to pass the time.
more updates on what i’ve been doing this past month to come…
