    The thing with sausage making is that your attention to detail, every little fucking one, is wildly important. Nailing 99% of the details but missing out on that tiny little piece could blow your entire sausage.

    And no, there's no chance you'd taste my foie by the time you came lol. That's at the hot apps station now, and garde manger when it's torchon. Garde Manger might be a station I could run in 6 months, but hot apps is one of the higher spots in our brigade, so it'd be at least a year before I got there.

    BTW, as always, I'm loving your beef sticks.


    I am happy you are enjoying the pictures of my beef stick. I hope to have one in your mouth at some point.

    So, come Cyrus, it's caviar or nothing from Kyle for me?

    At this point, it looks like I may still be on prep at that point. Which fucking BLOWS but I am patiently biding my time and trying to get better every day and put in the facetime with the chefs. If I am in fact still working prep, I'll make sure I stay through service that night and at least prepare your first and second courses, given that we aren't all in the shits. Usually when I stay, I'm allowed to run the station for the first seating, so I should be able to at least do something.

    Late in the first. Either way, I'll make sure I at least make all 4 of your party's first two courses.

    We're just chilling around the town on Sunday. Can meet up any time that day. Want to be ready for that tasting menu + grand pairings.

    Taking a break from it, the sausage.

    In a few weeks, I'll be doing either a smoked salami or a pate. Leaning towards the pate.
