I felt amazing after the grill off with Cory.
That night with the bosses in for dinner was HORRIBLE!!! I can safely say that was one of if not the worst night of my culinary career. In this business you always have nightmares about worse case scenarios.uhh this one happened. It was awful and every time we thought it couldnt get worse it did. It was stressful, upsetting, scary, and intense. The only good that came out of it was that we all came together as a team to salvage what we could. Well that and lots of vodka therapy at Vickery Park!!! I am not sure I am completely over it. I mean these are the big dogs and I fell flat on my face in front of them. It is a tough thing to get over!!! It was just a set of very very bad circumstances. It doesnt matter. I am the Executive Chef and the kitchen went down. It is MY FAULT!!! That is the way it goes. If I get the glory when things go well then I must take the hit when things go badly. Caroline and I had a great day out. I gave her a piece of jewelry that her Mom had bought for her. We went and got manicures and pedicures and we just had a great day together. I dont ever get to spend that type of quality time with her so it was great!!! It really allows me to see what is important!! I heart my family so much!!! Caroline has an awesome pallet. She loves everything from steak to sushi!! She is the youngest foodie I know. I have cooked for her but the most fun is when Caroline and I cook together!!! She is awesome in the kitchen and she even has her mini Blythe chef uniform!!! I felt amazing after the grill off with Cory. I love that I got to prove my skills but I felt bad for him. Thats my boy, my BFF, and I heart him!!! I have cooked lots of dishes with Cory. He was one of my bosses and mentors at the Mansion on Turtle Creek. Cory was one of the very first people I met in my career. We have been through so much together. I have seen Cory make food miracles happen (ask him about salsa) . He is an amazing Chef and a spectacular person. I am so blessed to have him in my life. Also he makes me this steak dish that makes you feel dirty in the naughty parts!!! There were so many things I hearted about that day!! First of all, Sam being at the grocery store was hilarious. I think he really enjoyed that. But then when he gave us the rulesI almost fell out. I thought it was just going to be a friendly, private competition. Then when we had to shop that was crazy!!! Absolutely crazy, insane. My favorite part was us actually cooking and Cory talking so much smack. I was also shocked when we found out who the judges were. If I had known I might have changed some components of the dishes. It was a great day and just another thing for Cory and I to bond over!!!!
