Fine cutlery

Posted by Malou at 9/24/2008 08:52:00 AM
I couldn't believe how time change so fast. I was only 15 years old when I started helping my uncle at their restaurant. They own a pretty size restaurant and after graduation in high school my parents couldn't afford for my college anymore so I decided to wait and find a job somehow to earn money and help my parents to support for our daily consumption. I ended up in my uncle's restaurant slicing meat which is not an easy job for me. Being cautious in doing it is important for safety. It's tough to slice meat when your carving knives and steak knives are so dull, it will take most of your time doing it. Working in a restaurant is a fast paced work so I had to do my part in catching up or else there's not going to have any food cooked for the customers and I might lose my job then. Working there gives me a lot of advantage because I get to watch my uncle cook the foods and learn his secret recipes which I can use now in my own kitchen. I guess cooking talent is in our blood because my two uncles are now chef on different well known hotels. My uncle work as a chef in one of the hotels in the Marianas Island while my youngest uncle is a chef in their town in the Philippines. Now that I am a chef in my house I always make sure that I have the best knives to use and always making sure that our knives works perfectly nice and sharp. I never had a dull moment in cooking. It is always fun and I am happy to see that my husband and children enjoyed the meals I prepared for us and an appreciation that they give me to prepare the food makes me happy.
