  1. Hello everyone, does anyone have any information on where to purchase the El Bulli cookbook other than the el Bulli website? I've looked around online and found nothing, but I really would to add this book to my collection. Thanks
  2. Nearly all of the higher-end restaurants require an interested applicant to stage for a few days. This is more of a curtistity to the appliciant than it is to the restaurant in that during those days that you are staging you really get to see what the restaurant is about. You might find that it is not a good fit between you and the restaurant. Maybe you don't like how they take care of their walk-in or maybe you do not like enviorment.

  3. Abbey is cool as hell, Waco Bros. rock. Also, stop by the Hideout, nice quaint place with friendly people, nice libitations, and you will have a rocking good time.

They have a furniture and everything with a dj spinning records till the wee hours, nice libitations as well.
  4. I have been in two kitchens in Chicago that had chef's tables in them and in one of those kitchens the chef's table is located right next to the dishwasher station. For anybody that doesn't know, most dish stations do not add a tranquil ambience to the dining experience. There is usually food slopped around in certain areas, it is steamy, hot, and usually they carry a putrid odor. With all that being said, this kitchen charges 175 dollars a person to eat at this table. Why would anyone want to pay this? In the other kitchen the chef's table is located in the chef's office at a distance fr
  5. The Complete Greek CookBook by Theresa Yianilos is by far my most worn, used, and loved cookbook in my entire collection. It has special significance in my life in that my Grandmother gave it to me on a trip my family made to see her about 7 years ago. My Grandmother is the person that ignited the passion in me to not only cook, but do it as a profession. I reference that book many times in that what dish can go wrong that has lemon, the best extra-virgin olive oil, and feta cheese in it?
