This is just a quick, jubilant post.
After years of being out of restaurant kitchens, I am going back in–and I am thrilled about it.
I am going to be cooking about twenty hours a week at Restaurant Salaam here in Athens. (For longtime readers, you might remember Salaam as the place where we had our unusual baby shower with the henna belly blessing and the amazing bellydancer, Eli.) It is very exciting, because I had planned on talking to the owner and chef, Hilary, about working with her a few nights a week, just because I needed to get out of the house and wanted to go back to restaurant work. Zak had been reminding me, and then I caught the cold, and then Kat caught it and everything went jumbled–I personally think it is not good form to go asking for a job when coughing like an emphysema patient.
But tonight, when we went in to eat, there was a tiny sign on the door that said, “Dependable kitchen help needed.”
Hilary came to seat us, and I asked about the job, and she said, “Who are you thinking about?”
When I said, “Me,” she didn’t even blink and answered without hesitation, “You’re hired.”
That was the easiest job interview I have ever had. (This blog was my resume, I think–Hilary has been an avid reader for a while now, as she is another super-creative foodie. )
So, after we ate, Hilary took me around, showed me the tiny, but efficiently laid out kitchen, and introduced me to all of her staff.
I can’t tell you all how excited I am. She even wants me to come up with dinner specials!
I start on Wednesday.
I can’t wait!
