Topic: OT: Cafe Job! (14 msgs / 312 lines)
1) From: Lynne Biziewski
Well, I'm really sick, with what is most likely bronchitis, but despite
this, I
am so happy - I got a job! (FINALLY!!)
I'll be helping out at a cute, new little cafe right down the street from my
house.
Actually, he's given me the title, "Assistant Pastry Chef," but I'm not
letting that go to my head - it's a small place, so I translate it to: get
there early,
leave late, and in between do what ever is needed, whenever.
Hopefully I can influence him to ditch the awful coffee...

Sorry to hear you're sick, but congrats on the job. I would think that the
Assistant Pastry Chef would have enough pull to get her coffee in the
lineup.;-)
Get better soon,

It would be nice! (It would also be nice to actually know the job.. ha!)
But I do love cooking, esp. baking - I think, eventually I'd like to offer
classes, on my own. I'd LOVE to share my love for food (and coffee, of
course) with others. Restaurant work itself is back breaking (I have no
illusions).

You need to work on facial expressions, and the phrose "Ackkkhhh - What
Wretched swill IS this stuff, and who made it?"  Follow up with "I can't be
serving this with my pastries....?
Do curl down your lips in a frown, and convey disgust...
This will serve you professionally as you deliver superior gastronomical
creations!

hahahahahahaha.
I love it.
(actually, I've been told that I show ALL my feelings by my facial
expression - so I don't even have to practice.)
I'm actually trying to figure out how to bring my FP without breaking it, so
I can make a decent cup to show him. (But I will wait til after the first
day... don't want to expose my insanity too quickly). I don't know what kind
of coffee maker/espresso contraption he has. Could be an expensive toy,
which won't bring out the real flavor at all.
Anyone who takes such care in food (& the surroundings, too) as this guy
does, will HAVE to be convinced when he tastes the difference. What a
difference this place is now - the bakery that USED to be there was a dump,
and they had the absolute worst stuff I EVER tasted. Connolis that tasted
like they were made of cardboard (how can anyone mess up a connoli?? I mean,
they can BUY the *^(&% shells, for heavens sake!)
No wonder they closed.

Buy a French Press with an acrylic caraffe - I bought one for my wife to use
while backpacking...  That won't break, and will get the job done...

I have an all stainless steel version that's nearly indestructible. It's
also sure to get attention from the airlines when traveling.

just bring him some of your brew hot in the thermos!

All very good suggestions. I have to work with what I have, at least for
now. I do
have a thermos, but it's plastic inside. I think I'll try it out & see if
the plastic changes
the flavor at all.
The good thing is I'm so close - bet it would only be in the thermos for
about 10 - 15 minutes.

Dennis - that's def a good idea, maybe after I actually get a paycheck!
I am going to see how this goes - hoping my (getting older - not old) bones
can
hold out with a job like this... I do think I'm going to have lots of fun,
tho.
(man, all this is making me want to make another cup... )
