$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.
Laduree for a late lunch
at the end of the day the most important thing, and i'm happy that it is applicable to me, i have enough to eat and i can afford it.
That is a very good thing
did you try the macarons?
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.
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).
squealy japanese girls who pay $12 for a macaron.
I had some mango passionfruit sorbet from a patisserie near my house yesterday, and it was amazing, like pure mango.
I can confirm that the azn representation at NYC Laduree was very ripe.
