My first day at Hope Care Center as Not Your Average Cook went very well. It was quite a relief to know that it was, in fact, my perfect job. I've had a job or two over the years that seemed lovely in concept but by the end of the first shift, it was obvious that it would be employment to be endured, not enjoyed.
And I can already tell I'm going to enjoy this.
It was fun working in a different kitchen -- especially to be cooking with actual fire. Chef and I get along well and are already learning from each other. I helped with various components of both breakfast and lunch, but my big hit of the day was a carrot cake. Chef designs the menu but as cooks we can we're encouraged to take creative liberties. I'm excited to see what tomorrow brings.
