    $10.50 an hour isn't so bad. That's actually pretty good for a line cook. The 80 hour weeks are rough, though, but I like them much better than the usual 90 hour weeks.

    professional kitchens feature more sex, drugs, and alcohol than the fashion world. $10.50 an hr isnt so bad if youre doing hours.

    what am i talking about? i hate being poor..

    I now have two, very nice, 15 and 16# packer cut briskets in my freezer. One will be smoked next weekend to portion out and freeze and the other will get smoked in November to bring to a homecoming tail gate. :slayer:

    well of course, they don't really sell much of anything else (besides some chocolates and candles and fancy grocery bags)

    Laduree macarons are like $75 for 6 piece (!!!!) in Tokyo at exchange rate nowadays, lol. Pierre Herme (which I think taste better anyway) are like 6 for $20. :eek:

    damn. They're like $2.70 a piece here, plus a rather long line. I had to pick up a tux at RL across the street so I figured what the hell, I hadn't had any from Laduree since a friend brought me some from Paris a few months ago. They're great and all, but I actually have a preference for the macarons sold at a tiny sandwich place near USQ.

    Who the fuck would pay $12 for a macaron? FWIW, the macarons here are tasty and a buck a piece. But I guess nobody wants to go all the way out to Jackson Heights (my former home, sniff sniff).

    I had some mango passionfruit sorbet from a patisserie near my house yesterday, and it was amazing, like pure mango. :slayer:
