Welcome to my blog ladies and gents! I would like to take the first post to get a few things off my chest. First and foremost I intend this blog to be funny and lighthearted. It may, at first glance, appear to be poking fun at certain groups of people, places, or things. This is actually TRUE. But the truth is I have a great respect and appreciation of everything I will be posting about- the FOOD, the people who stand to my left and right in the TRENCHES, and even those pesky customers who cause a great deal of stress in our lives. This blog is not going to pursue "Culinary Perfection" or anything much related to the molecular gastronomic movement. I do, however, want to include very relative and useful Spanish slang. I want to share all I have gathered in my experience working kitchens because, after all, most of us don't know the half of what is going on sometimes. I will share derogatory, foul, and downright insulting language. I can guarantee that some of this, if used in the wrong place, will get you kicked in the nuts. Furthermore I'd like to say that I am not a trained professional in the Spanish language nor do I posses a degree of any sort. I also want to chronicle my culinary adventures from week to week, including pictures and some genuine Philly shit talking. I have some cool ideas for upcoming posts so stay tuned and check back for more!
Lastly I'd like to give a shout out to a few SF bloggers, who over the past year have helped me keep the motivational fire under my ass !
