Food Talk 1

We’ll who will they look at when you cook?

The shy chef giggles a little when her manger gets heated up with the suggestion of putting up a wall between where she cooks and the customers waits for their food. I always think of my Grandma’s cooking, she made the best chilli, still does. She’s open to teaching us the recipe and we have requested this workshop many times. The day comes and she’s already finished, or already has it on the stove. She moves quick. Don’t get me wrong, the chillin is the but I never really saw her do anything. I don’t even know if she washed her hands, well I know she did but I’m just trying to bring up the concept of having the option to see your food maker, make the food right in front of your eyes.

I mean do you like the see the cook, cook? 

My grandma is amazing at what she does, and I know she’s not hiding any secret ingredient from us. I think it comes down to trust when you get older and have more options on what’s for dinner. I just have trust that my Grandma will deliver, but when it comes to eating at some unknown places, restaurants, food trucks. Where ever it may be, watching the chef prepare the meal is pretty cool. 

I may never see that person again in my life and other great meals will be had in life, yet in that moment of exchange, the customer and cook connect. And that is just fucken beautiful. Sorry Grandma.
