Although you won’t be able to understand a day-in-the-life of a cook/baker just by reading an article — just as we all can’t begin to fathom the horrors of how bad Jennifer Lopez is at acting by watching Gigli — it’s merely a glimpse of the truth residing beneath the surface of your TV screen and the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into making the best dish possible. It’s a labor of love and very difficult to explain to the uninitiated. How do you tell a friend who makes what I make in a year, in 6 weeks, about passion. There’s no passion in a suit and tie. No dedication in the bottom line. No love in numbers.
Be sure you read my old post about how Cal Ripken Jr. can SUCK IT!
