Vision Quest

Food — By Crust on October 11, 2010

I’m having a hard time feeling comfortable writing on my blog. I feel like I don’t want people to know what I’m up to because I’m not sure what I’m up to. I feel like I needed a break from cooking and other things were needing my attention. But I feel like such a loser not being in a kitchen, especially with my crust in the kitchen blog. I’m going to try and write through this strange stage in my life, in hopes that everything will come full circle.

Kyle and I have been fixing up the house and looking for part-time jobs, and generally being lazy. We want to work part time as servers or bartenders so that we can maximize both money and spare time, but still get experience in the industry. We prefer to cook and experiment at home rather than trying to find a kitchen we fit into here, if we were looking to work in kitchens full time we’d be off to New York. At this point I want to cook only what I want to cook, with ingredients that I believe in. This may change and we could end up in another big center, but for now we want to enjoy living in this smaller community.

I have time to read, and I’m taking ballet and yoga once a week. I’m in the process of applying for University to finish my sociology degree, because I only have one term left and it is all electives so I can take some fun stuff. I’m trying for a really balanced cook life. In Medium Raw it talks about the life of Cory Lee and it reminded me of other chefs I’ve seen and read about in Michael Rhulman books that are super successful, but their lives are mad crazy. Reading about these people is hard because it makes me feel trapped in my chosen field, like if I want to be good I have to give up everything else in my life. I try not to let it get me down because I want to be a chef/owner someday, but on my own terms with a business suited to me and the things in my life. I don’t expect to get rich doing this, but I think I will be happy.

    Just do what you love and you will be happy. Life is way to short. Don’t make it to my age never doing what you really wanted to do. There is nothing wrong with risk. Just take calculated risks. Most of all remember all the love and support you have. There will always be Mum and the Other Mom there for you : )
